Art Display: Saretta Fielding for NAIDOC Week - Wallsend Library
Saretta Fielding is an artist, entrepreneur and activist. A member of the Wanaruah Nation of the Hunter Valley Region in New South Wales, she is the founder of Saretta Art and Design which is acclaimed for high-quality original artworks, innovative textiles, homewares, and fashion lines.
Saretta Fielding is an Aboriginal Woman of the Wonnarua Nation, born in Sydney, Australia. Her father is a Wonnarua Man and her mother is from European descent. Saretta has many fond memories of childhood, growing up with five younger siblings and a large close-knit extended family.
She has a strong sense of belonging to the Hunter Valley and considers the region her home. Saretta’s artworks are significantly influenced by the beauty and splendour of this country. Growing up alongside the shimmering Lake Macquarie shores, surrounded by the lush bushlands of the Watagan Mountains and the beautiful beaches dotted along the coastline has given Saretta the very best nature has to offer, inspiring each and every artwork.
These prints of Saretta’s artworks reflect in style many traditional sand engravings found throughout Wonnarua country and the Hunter Region and are connected to country in style and design through use of a sand based medium and engraving technique. The highly textured pieces embody the age-old sandstone engraved artworks created by Saretta’s ancestors and add a unique dimension to the works.
