Mary MacKillop Mural @ Shalom Catholic College Bundaberg-  April 2015

At the large size of 3.6 x 1.5 meter Mary MacKillop is standing high and firm on the purple wall -which is the MacKillop wall at Shalom Catholic College. Over four months, more than 400 hours of construction, countless firings, day-long glazing, four full day of installation with Chris Johnston- at last my Artist-In Residence Project in Shalom is now completed. I have learned to admire and appreciate the immense strength and stamina that is Mary MacKillop – a Saint, a Feminist (1987) and a driving force for education to all in early days of settlement in Rural Colonial Australia.
