Lives and works


“I grew up in Bidgy (Bidyadanga Community) with old people that came from the desert. We lived in old camp, that’s the area which now they call Udilla street in Bidgy, with my dad and my aunties. They never spoke English or couldn’t understand any English. But they taught me a lot about bush life and told me a lot of stories about themselves and also they took good care of me. I started doing painting in Bidgy at Tafe. I started painting patterns about the colour of the ocean and the sand and the land, growing up near the beach.”
