“My name is Andrew Stewart. I’m from the Dunghutti Nation which is Kempsey and surrounding areas. I started painting to gain knowledge of my culture, as I didn’t know that much about my culture as I was growing up, only a few stories that my Elders passed down to me. Now I will be able to pass this knowledge to my children with the stories, my appreciation will be told through my painting.”
Andrew’s painting “Dunghutti Totem” is in the gallery’s permanent collection.
