Disaster-prone regions regroup to rebuild….
Gripped by the images on the television and YouTube of the devastation following the flooding across Queensland in early 2011, I felt great empathy for the people involved. It was hard to imagine what they were going through. I wanted to paint or visualize these communities pulling together to rebuild their lives in the aftermath.
