Lives and works


Colleen Drage lives and works in Northampton, on Yamatji Country. She is a senior Nhanda woman and cultural leader in the community. She has a strong cultural background from her early life on Murchison House Station, with many memories and stories from aunties and uncles and particularly her father. Her artwork celebrates these memories and connection to Country. Colleen says of this artwork, “As a child I used to collect quandongs on Nhanda Country for my Mum. As we collected quandongs, goanna used to be at the base of the tree, scratching around for quandong as well. We ate goanna and quandong.”
