The Multicultural Series is a development of the Transmutation Series. As an Australian of mixed heritage I was able to enter the Australian Lithuanian Cultural Festival Art Exhibition. In 2011 the theme was 'The Other Side', recognising and reconciling our Australian identities with our Lithuanian identities. I have always felt a part of all cultures in my heritage and I am also proud to consider myself an Australian. These creatures are animals that combine species native to Lithuania and Australia. They represent, for me, the multicultural nature of my heritage and the ability to exist as an individual that participates and embraces in the multicultural nature of the country I was born in.
