Lives and works


Marika is a proud Nhanda/Wadjarri woman developing her own multi-media art practice, celebrating family stories and cultural heritage. Marika has been a long term youth participant in the Ku’arlu Mangga program that connects youth with elders on country, and encourages creative expression in the art studios with Colleen and Mauretta Drage. Marika says of her practice, “My work explores emotions, and identity, living urban life like any modern young woman and also learning culture and wanting cultural futures. My art work helps me express what I experience and find my balance with it. I like to share whimsical work as well, inspired by the world around us; raindrops, rainbows, stars and flowers find their way into my work.”
