"I come from West of the range, Mallanganee - my grandmother and my father's country. I was born stomping my feet and with a paint brush in my hand"


"Nature and culture inspire me. My dreams really inspire me - things I see in my head, visions. I'm always picturing stories in my mind. All of my pictures have a story that goes with them - everyone. I like to paint Aboriginal people, things from our culture, because I have a real longing for culture and knowledge - to learn and to share."
