Wellington Aboriginal elder Aunty Joyce Williams has been immortalised in a portrait artwork as part of NAIDOC celebrations.
The work was drawn by a 57-year-old inmate at the Wellington Correctional Centre to thank Aunty Joyce for her years of service.
Macquarie and Wellington correctional centre governors presented Ms Williams with the acrylic painting.

Corrective Services NSW senior assistant Superintendent Wayne Bywater said even at 92-years-old the Wiradjuri Elder was still extremely active within the community.
"The painting is a small gesture to acknowledge Aunty Joyce, who has been heavily involved in Aboriginal cultural events at the prison," Mr Bywater said.
"She has provided support to both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal inmates across the years to ensure they still feel included in their communities."
