"My heart is heavy for my dear friend's loss and the pain endured by Forgotten Australians. Yet, amidst the sorrow, there is a glimmer of hope as we embark on a healing journey along the river. I've captured all of this in my painting, where the river washes away the pain.
We don't need to understand life or death, we only need to embrace this moment, right now. This artwork speaks of resilience, healing and finding solace in the present."
Sherryl Munson, a resilient Forgotten Australian, faces the challenge of being unable to read or write. However, she rejects sympathy and has discovered a powerful means of communication through the arts. Sherryl pours her emotions into her paintings.
Through painting and various art forms, Sherryl finds a voice to express her innermost thoughts, confront life's obstacles and conquer her fears of the unknown.
Dance is another outlet that brings her immense joy and self-expression. With a deep understanding of hardship and the experience of having very little, Sherryl passionately seeks to connect with those less fortunate, offering empathy and understanding.
