  • Lives & Works


A proud Indigenous man, Darryl was born in Gnowangerup | Esperance where he lived for most of his early life. Darryl moved to Perth in his early adulthood. Since the move, Darryl has explored his creative side, uncovering his creative flair by joining various art classes run by DADAA and one on one art sessions with local artists. He has limited spoken words and chooses to use hand gestures and sounds to communicate. You will most likely find Darryl pointing to his favourite super hero and then be glued to the pen and paper, taking them on a journey throughout his artwork. From stop signs to fast cars, there is most certainly a whole world going on in Darryls mind when he’s in the process of creating. Painting helps Darryl feel grounded and connected, it’s an activity that he looks forward to doing in his daily life.
