"I was born in Kununurra and I went to school in Broome. I started painting at Waringarri Arts in 2015 to carry on the stories of my parents, Peggy and Alan Griffiths - the cultural stories that were handed down to them and now to me. Both my parents are famous artists in the Kimberley but most importantly, they are my traditional teachers."
