Lives and works


“This painting depicts the healing pool of my home Country where I grew up. The healing pool is a natural saltwater spring that never dries up. It is positioned in the middle of Salt Lake Country where my people have utilised the waters to heal themselves over thousands of years. It is believed that the healing pool is protected by the Wunapi, meaning Rainbow serpent in Wongutha language. The Wunapi is one of the most powerful forces of nature and spirits in Aboriginal culture. It is the giver of life the creator of land, water holes, creeks, rivers and gorges but most of all he is protector of water.”
