Lives and works

Warmun/ Turkey Creek, East Kimberley

“I just started painting at the Warmun Art Centre. I have lived in Warmun since i was a baby. The reason why I really wanted to paint, because my Great Grandmother and my Grandmother shared their story with me and I want to continue their story with my children. I paint about Gija Womens skin group names, the Catholic way, Generations to Generations, making birds out of a boab nut, bush medicines, bush tucker, massacre and the most important thing I paint about my Great Grandmother, Grandmother and my Great Grandfather country and stories.”

Serena’s grandmother is Shirley Purdie and her great grandmother is Madigan Thomas. Her mother is Helen Pinday.
