Jacinda Hayes is a young artist from Alice Springs. She re-located to Darwin in 2019 for better schooling opportunities for her 6 children.
Jacinda’s great aunt is the famous artist Gloria Petyarre and her grandmother is the well-known Margaret Scobie.
Jacinda tells of how Gloria passed on the ‘Bush Medicine Leaves’ Dreaming to Margaret as health challenges arose. Gloria wanted to ensure the Dreaming was continued.
Margaret in turn passed this Dreaming on to Jacinda as she is her eldest grand-daughter.
Jacinda spent a lot of time with her grandmother learning how to use colour and the brush, “this keeps the culture strong and keeps the connection”. Jacinda will pass this Dreaming down to her children in the hope that they will pass it to theirs and so on.
