MEET.

CLARE O’DWYER:
Feisty & Defiant.

GLOBAL CITIZEN, THE WORLD.

Have you ever wondered what your parents were like at your age? Do you ever find yourself perplexed by the choices your parents made, leading them to this lifestyle or point in time?

As we grow and develop, we often look to our parents for guidance. Whether it is to better understand who we are, or realise who we don’t want to be. Ultimately, it is our parents choices and actions that have lead to us being here.

This is my mother, Clare.

She recently moved overseas to live and work. We have been very close most of my life. This interview is a formal and, in some ways, direct conversation about the things we talk about all the time. Colour, identity, truth and choice.
