As an aboriginal artist Brandon Porteous strive continuously to create new designs on a regular basis. He says "I love to tell these stories to the world through my art so that people might awaken and see what progress in land clearing is destroying. The most constant form of artistic inspiration is my ardent desire to witness the next generation of my people to see the rain forest the way I experienced it as a child".
