David was born in 1964 in the Victoria River Downs region of the Northern Territory. He lived on several Aboriginal communities before leaving school at the age of 15 and returning home to his Grandparent’s country. He was then a stockman for approximately 10 years before taking an interest in his heritage as an Aboriginal and began to study art under the direction of his Grandfather and tribal relations. During this process it was discovered that he had a natural talent and has become one of Australia’s finest Aboriginal Artists.

“The Women who turned into a Mermaid”
All the men around wanted to marry one Women as she was very beautiful. They chased
her always and one day they chased her to the river. The women jumped into the river and disappeared, not to be seen in that form again.

They say she changed into Kadooka Water Women and swam into the ocean.  There she got a ride with an ancient Sea Turtle and went out to sea where she lived happily as a Mermaid.
We see her as the Kadooka Women riding the giant turtle out to sea, surrounded by her Mimi Mimi Spirit Guides.
