DOORS to the City of Subiaco Administration Centre have been embellished with indigenous illustrations for NAIDOC week.

Noongar artist Seantelle Walsh has painted all six seasons on the council’s front doors in celebration of NAIDOC week.

Ms Walsh, who is a descendant of the Ballardong (Wheatbelt) and Gnaala Karla Boodja (Collie) regions, said art has always played an important part in her life.

A connection to Boodjar (or country) is a theme in Seantelle’s artwork as well as flora and fauna native to Subiaco.

“I love the instant gratification of colour, paint and self-expression,” she said.

Mayor Penny Taylor said the City of Subiaco was proud to be hosting celebrations throughout NAIDOC Week.

The city’s annual Welcome to Country and Flag Raising Ceremony will be held on July 10 at 10am outside the City of Subiaco Administration Centre.
