‘’ Everything I do is part of my own dreaming and journey, honouring him whom created all and I am hopefully creating something beyond the physical whether it be community, discussion, connection, understanding or positive experiences.’’
Leet’s Dreaming is an enterprise originated by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artist Leeton Lee. Leeton is a descendant of the Bundjalung and Thunghutti tribes in New South Wales and the Mualgal tribe of Moa Island in the Torres Strait.
Leet’s Dreaming offers a range of products including greeting cards, cushion covers, scarves and fabrics. All products are adorned with Leeton’s original designs. Leeton uses acrylic mediums with luminescence to create a glow in the dark effect as well as 3 dimensional paintings to create an extra element of uniqueness to his art. His paintings are a mix of earth colours of the land as well as saltwater colours of the sea.
Leet’s Dreaming also offers a range of workshops. Leeton is on a life journey to revitalise his culture and learn the old ways of making weapons, tools and instruments. Also learning about bush medicine, foods, tracking and using natural materials to make string, baskets, fish traps and shelters.
Working with youth through various organizations and schools he hopes to continue knowledge and culture for the next generation, one positive experience at a time. Making artefacts and producing one of a kind items brings a special connection to the item being made. "It is a time to sit deep in thought about those ancestors who performed the same processes".
