‘This is a painting of the pelicans and birds that live at the lake at RMIT Bundoora. In the background, I have painted Uncle Herb driving Jemma the puppy to our home at Mill Park … When I paint I feel like I’m in the Dreamtime and can see all the animals and birds that live there.’ TREVOR ‘TURBO’ BROWN, 2004
