"I was born in Kununurra on Miriwoong Country and lived here all my life except for some schooling in Broome in Years 8 & 9. I started as the artist support worker at Waringarri Aboriginal Arts helping all the old people in 2004. After coming here for a while and helping the old people mix paints, I started painting myself... I paint and print textiles as often as I can because it heals me.. I am following in the footsteps of my parents and my elders to learn about Country, culture and art and to share that knowledge through my art".
