Denise Hedges was born and raised in Singleton in the Hunter Valley just as her ancestors were before her. Denise’s family has a close cultural tie to the land of the Wanaruah people, a connection that she expresses through her art. Alive with colour and symbolism, Denise’s paintings reflect her deep-rooted connection to the land.
“I have been painting for many years” says Denise. “I use my art to share my love of my culture by educating others on the richness of Aboriginal life in the Hunter Valley.”
