Artist's statement

The men and women of our Australian Army sacrifice so much to protect and defend not only our country but also countries that cannot help themselves. I have taken this photo of Corporal Kathryn Jolley to show that Soldiers are real people. They have families, friends and lives outside of the Army. All the politics and conflict in the world aside, Kat is a regular person. She is a beautiful mum, an amazing wife, a caring sister, and a loving daughter. She chose a career where she gets the chance, no matter how small, to make a difference in the world.
