‘I describe how ‘creative will’ enables my creative engagement with social justice concerns and cross-cultural collaborations which are often explored in the context of the land with a spiritual perspective. Also I explore the family ‘art gene’, women artists and arts leadership and shifting cultural and attitudinal change.  Descriptive passages tell of engaging with a dingo, apostle birds, spiritually charged environments, colourful characters and risky solo adventures.  The purpose of this book is to encourage others to embark on fresh directions in life and to thank those who have made my particular journey possible.’
