Bogong Moth Art = Healing, Culture and Connection to the Land

Sal Lavallee is an artist from the Ngarigo nation her Grandmothers country, which reaches from the Cooma plains of southern NSW, the Australian Alps through to Gippsland Victoria. Her Grandfathers country is Yuin, South Coast of NSW.

Sal’s art is contemporary in style, inspired by stories from her Grandmother’s and Grandfathers country and her personal spiritual experiences. Sal studied Aboriginal art and cultural practices, however her biggest teacher was always her uncle who taught her the traditional style of Ngarigo.

In 2012 Sal was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia, and her art gave her a way to connect to her spirituality , culture and the land while stuck in hospital for many months during treatment. She developed new techniques that allowed her to complete artworks in hospital and fell in love with the mediums of paper, acrylic and posca paints.
