Lives and works

Punmu Community

Roxanne is from Warakuna and has been painting for some years now, alongside her sister Cynthia and mother Jorna. She loves doing aerial landscapes of her father’s Country Yirriya, both painting and weaving the landscape. Roxanne has been working on a series of pieces, a bus, house and various animals drinking from the waterholes, weavings that reflect her memories of her father’s Country. They are detailed, bright and bring stories of countries into 3D form. “When I’m painting or weaving I forget about everything and everyone, forget about my worries, it makes me feel like me,” she says.
