Rande Cook


“It is my intentions to break barriers..
…between Indigenous art and the art of the world by fusing many ideas that will enrich the body of my art form, My hope is that by doing this we as a society can see the beauty in all cultures and embrace the spirit that connects us all in an ever embracing rainbow of colour.” RC
