Roslyn Serico is a sixth generation (incarcerated) Aboriginal in her late fifties--she was born in the time her whole family were still under the control of exclusioned Government policies--1897 until 1967.
Roslyn was born and raised on a mission in South East QLD.
She was educated and went to university in order to help educate mainstream Australians and her own people that art practice is an Indigineous learning style that provides healing for many Indigineous people. She wants to ensure that Indigineous people can be moving forward with the rest of society and believes it will take the lap-top generation learning style--through symbolic processess of communication,that it is vital for dismantling what she sees as the passive welfare paradigm in Aboriginal Communities.
Her art work takes a long time to complete because each one is a complex and moving story.
Her work has been shown in the Boomerang Gallerie in Amsterdam (owned by Peter Maddon)and has had exhibitions in Switzerland and Paris.She has sold her work to Pavarotie's wife,Mick Jagger and her art work called 'Fire' is hanging in a diplomats office in Hong Kong.
I am priviliged to know her as a wonderful artist and a friend.

What to buy: Each art work is special and tells a story.
She likes to work on medium to large canvases to enable her story to unfold.

What to pay: Anywhere from $200 to $3000

Address: Home studio,Cairns,QLD
Directions: Home studio...she is happy to give out her personal phone number if any one wants to enquire about her works.
