Meet our mates who've been putting aside the digital paint brush / weaving / rugby boots / radio mic / pen of justice - to rep the Goose!

Sonja often collaborates with her daughter Leecee, who is a fellow artist and weaver (check out their beautiful ghost net cyanotypes. )! Leecee has some incredible public art pieces around Brisbane that everyone must check out, has been recently acquired by the British Museum, and is nominated for this year's NATSIAAs!
Sisters Ree-Ann and Kim are Bundjalung / South Sea Islander creatives, both living on Yuggera country (in Brisbane). Ree has recently moved from Darwin and is working on her next creative business; and Kim is the mastermind behind K Rae Designs - a digital illustration business that is quirky, cute and powerful (check out her 'self care women' print on the right!)
It's truly been a family affair - meet Meriam / Wagadagam sisters Kat and Alex Dorante!
Rachael Sarra is a contemporary Aboriginal artist from Goreng Goreng Country, who uses art as a powerful tool in storytelling to educate and share Aboriginal culture and its evolution. Rachael explores her Aboriginality through art and design, with each piece strengthening her identity.
As a commercial artist, she's worked on some pretty incredible collaborations - you'll see her art on busses, stamps, and on the walls of 13+ Kmart stores!
Last but not least, the talented Mundanara Bales; from the Wonnarua and Bunjalung people on her mother’s side and the Birri-Gubba and Gungalu on her father’s side.
She is co-founder of The Blackcard, a business dedicated to building the cultural capability of corporate organisations to work effectively with members of the Aboriginal community and host of the Black Magic Woman podcast series - an uplifting conversational style program featuring unique stories about Aboriginal identity, culture and history.
Mundanara is proud mum of 5 beautiful Murri / Fijian kids - including the gorgeous Tiga-Lilli, pictured!
We look forward to introducing you to more fabulous people who rep the Goose!
