Sicilia’s love of Australian animals and birds are the inspiration for her art
Since childhood, Sicilia has been interested in art and craft and has a natural eye for color and detail. Caversham Wildlife Park in the Swan Valley is a popular destination for Sicilia and her support worker, Geraldine, as there are lots of animals and birds to look at around the park, including her favourites, the koalas!
Together, they have created many beautiful and colourful paintings over the last 12 months.
“We regularly go shopping for art and craft supplies for when she attends her craft lessons and also for our painting and drawing sessions at home,” said Geraldine.
Our sessions are very productive with Sicilia choosing the subject for the painting and what colours we should use,” explains Geraldine.
Sicilia is always thinking of her family, and her artwork is often a gift for them and her friends.
