Australian Paintings

My friend Hilary gave me these two Australian paintings on a flexible canvas. Not sure what to do with them, I wouldn't want them to be washed. I have a lot of Australian fabrics that my parents brought back when they traveled there a couple years ago, perhaps combining the two in something. I love the symbols, and need to research what the heck these images mean.

Australian Worms or???

My guess is that those worms are witchetty grubs...I was researching "weird foods" once and found out they are eaten there.

Thanks Elle! I love that name "witchetty grubs".

Hello - this might seem strange and out of the blue, but I surfed in here looking for turtle images and I really love the one your friend sent you.

I'm looking into getting a tiny, simple turtle tattoo, and this is one of the best images for that sort of thing I've seen yet. Is there any way I could possibly get her permission to use this in the future?

Feel free to contact me:
