“I come from West of the range, Mallanganee – my grandmother & my fathers’ country. I was born stomping my feet and with a paint brush in my hand”
“Nature and culture inspire me. My dreams really inspire me- things I see in my head visions. I’m always picturing stories in my mind. All of my pictures have a story that goes with them – everyone. I like to paint Aboriginal people, things from our culture, because I have a real longing for culture and knowledge – to learn and to share. I’d like to see more people notice Bundjalung talent. Actually, art from all over Australia, not just the Northern Territory.
