The 'Wonderlands: Sea' Scalloped Borders pack is a vibrant and culturally enriching addition to any learning environment, graced by the artwork of contemporary Aboriginal artist, Daisy Hill.
Designed to be used side-by-side, these borders create a continuous and engaging pattern across large spaces. Each pack contains 12 borders, each measuring 90cm in length and 5.8cm in height, totalling 10.8 metres. This makes them perfect for wrapping around room perimeters, whiteboards, and bulletin boards, adding a touch of wonder to any classroom setting. These borders are proudly designed in Australia, bringing an authentic piece of art into the hands of educators and students.
The designs in the Wonderlands collection will evoke joy, inspire learning, engage, and honour the connections with our native Australian flora and fauna. In collaboration with Aboriginal Artist, Daisy Hill and in celebration of our First Nations people and children, this collection was designed to help us learn, understand, appreciate, and respect the cultural traditions and knowledge that has been passed down for thousands of years.
It is important to note that the symbols and stories shared are unique to Daisy Hill and her own interpretations and do not represent all First Nations people. All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural groups have different perspectives, interpretations and understandings of stories and knowledge passed down to them.
About the Artist
Daisy Hill is an Aboriginal artist and proud descendant of the Muruwari people from NW NSW, currently living on Yugambeh Country (Gold Coast). Daisy's art style can be described as modern and contemporary. She paints intuitively, the same way her ancestors did. Daisy feels an overwhelming connectedness to her thoughts, feelings and spirit when she paints. She describes the painting process as being deeply spiritual and meditative. Daisy has a passion to tell stories and strives to keep the traditions of her people alive. “It is a way for me to feel connected to the Motherland - the trees, water, sand, sun, earth and animals. I paint to convey the beauty I see in all things and to express my gratitude and acknowledge the Country I am walking, living and breathing. I feel so grateful that people want to invest in me and my culture,” says Daisy.
