Ngandabaa has been working with The Fred Hollows Foundation since 2018. During that time we have worked on various projects which include commissioning pieces of art to represent The Foundation, our values and our events. Working with Rhe has always been a pleasure. Her seamless approach to working with partners is professional, accommodating and warm. I really enjoy working with Rhe and know she will continue to be a long term friend and partner of The Foundation.
Rheanna not only created a design for our uniform, she captured the story and the heart of the Australian Paralympic Team. Our athletes now wear it with pride at both Winter and Summer Paralympic Games. Rheanna’s art has symbolically brought our athletes together from the very first Australian Paralympians in 1960 to the team of today. Our uniform is the envy of other nations and we are incredibly grateful for the time Rheanna took to listen to and understand our team culture before translating it into this beautiful work of art.
Plumtree has worked with Rheanna for over a year now. She is amazing! The quality of her program for the children is second to none. She brings great cultural knowledge to the children, staff, and families as they explore different symbols, styles of painting and exploration of ochre.
Rheanna has taken our community on a journey with her as we develop a greater understanding while sharing the magic and joy of the Aboriginal culture. Rheanna is such a talented artist and every time I see her working with the children, I am so thrilled that we have found someone who is as talented, committed, and respectful of the children.
Thank you for coming and embracing our preschool; we hope for many more years of working together.
"Working with Rhe was an honour and a privilege for us at the Gidget Foundation. It was seamless from the first conversation about the project right through until delivery of our beautiful artwork, which was a spectacular representation of our special heartfelt gerbera image. Not only was Rhe easy to deal with but her adaptation of the brief was beyond our expectations as she truly immersed herself in our mission, vision and values. I would work with Rhe again, in a heart-beat!"
“Every two years we engage an Indigenous artist to design our SDNR Sherrin. Rhe was perfect for 2019, our first female artist AND she had worked and played in footy. She was extremely professional and always engaged throughout the whole process. Her artwork is a testament to her commitment, her passion and more importantly to her culture.”
"Rheanna has been working with Cricket NSW for several years now, helping design team uniforms for both elite and community teams as well as our Reconciliation Action Plan artwork. Rheanna is caring and thorough with her consultation, her creation and education of the artworks she has created for us over the years. Rheanna has made incredible contributions to Cricket NSW and we are so excited to continue to work with her as we move forward"
"Collaborating with Rhe to create a very special and meaningful design for Paralympics Australia was a wonderful process. Rhe’s creativity, willingness and considered approach was inspiring and resulted in a truly unique and beautiful artwork which is now worn with pride and passion by the Paralympics Australia Team.
We are so looking forward to working together with Rhe on many more future projects."
