Belinda Aikas is a self-taught mixed media artist based in Melbourne. Her artwork is inspired by a lifelong passion with the ocean and Australia’s diverse coastline. The visceral motivation factor behind her work as she says, “the beach and the ocean, it’s just in my soul”. When I think of cricket, I associate it with the memory of childhood Summer holidays, playing cricket with my friends down the beach on long balmy summer days into the evening at sunset. As this creation is a collaboration project with Will’s crew and Woodbine who did the preparation for this bat, I left the handle as I received it, acknowledging their contribution to this artwork.
