This exegesis supports the artist-researcher's Creative Arts Project, which explores how personal memories and reflection on family history and narratives can be used as resources for image making. The exegesis underscores the essentialness of Efland' s (1990) Expressive Psychoanalytic model as a conceptual framework in visual arts education,as well as reviewing associated literature about memory and semiotics, and the role of Images in reconstructing self-realization, identity and social history. The artist-researcher also links Efland's model to Gardner's (1996) Inter and Intra Personal Intelligences. The artist-researcher introduces the work of influential artists in Australia, Canadian , and other overseas artists who also work in the field of textile design with personal and family history themes. However, specifically the exegesis, positions the artist-researcher's Creative Arts Project and major exhibition.
