Lives and works

Tom Price

“My name is Gail Cox (Gilly Gilly to my family). I was born in 1969 in Wyloo Station (in Jurruru Country). I grew up in Onslow with my Nana because Paraburdoo was a closed town in those days. My old people were born and raised at Rocklea station, and they stayed in Rocklea; even though they worked at the surrounding stations, they always returned home. As a young person, every time I went past Rocklea, my heart would sing, even though I didn’t realise that it was really my home until later. During the Homeland Movement, my gudja (big brother) and I came back to Yinahwangka Country.  My first painting was done in Karajini Aboriginal Corporation in Onslow. I’ve done a few paintings over my lifetime.”
