Bernadine typically paints stories associated with Bush Foods, Bush Medicine Leaves, and the collection of these plants by the women in her community. In particular, Bernadine is well-known for her depiction of the Bush Medicine Leaves. This particular plant refers to a species of acacia, which is used as part of traditional indigenous healing. Women collect leaves from this plant and boil them to extract the resin. The resin is then mixed with kangaroo fat, which results in a paste. This paste is used to heal bites, wounds, cuts and rashes and can also be used as an insect repellent. The leaves from the plant can also be brewed to make tea and can be used to alleviate symptoms of the common flu.
