The paintings that i do mostly are one’s that have been told to me and that are a part of my life from the land, from my Nanna and dad, and stories i painted when I travelled with my children’s father.
The colours I love to use are the earthy colours from the ochres on the land with acrylic. You can see all the colours everywhere you travel around the Kimberley.
