"Children of the Dreamtime presents a vivid picture of the Aboriginal people of central Australia, their way of life and the environment in which they live.
In her work artist Helen Baldwin shows us the beauty she perceives in the Australian outback and the people who first made it their home.
Art writer, editor and lecturer Laura Murray selected the paintings presented here so that as wide an audience as possible could share the beauty of Helen Baldwin's watercolours. Both the landscapes and the portraits are superbly executed and are imbued with the artist's love of the country and the people. She has painted children at play, women gathering 'bush tucker', men and boys working with cattle at stockyards, as well as spectacular scenes of sunsets and mountains, creeks and deserts."
