My name is Maria Watson-Trudgett and I am a contemporary Aboriginal artist from the Wiradjuri people of NSW.

I truly hope you enjoy my contemporary Aboriginal  paintings and that you may want to take some home to live with you.


You will notice that many of my pieces are painted in bright, strong colours with distinctive patterns and motifs with representations of both contemporary and traditional origins.  While my art reflects my character and personality it also reflects my cultural awareness as a social scientist.  Painting in a way that promotes reconciliation and cultural awareness between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people brings me great joy and optimism.
