ABOUT THE ARTIST

I am a descendant of the Kullilli and Wakka Wakka clans, and I’ve been painting for over 40 years. In 2016 I completed a degree in Contemporary Australian Indigenous Art at Griffith University. My practice includes sculptures, intricate cultural weaving and traditional and contemporary Indigenous paintings and prints. My style reflects my heritage as an Indigenous woman, and my grandmother’s life and stories of our cultural journeys. My current work depicts the impact on our culture as a result of dispersal, stolen generations and black slavery in Australia. It is through our past and present elders that these historical, traditional and contemporary stories are told through my Indigenous art pratice
