“I am a 44 year old Biripi woman married to a Kamilaroi man and have 3 children. I began painting roughly 14 years ago inspired by my mother’s art. Growing up in North Western NSW (Narrabri) is where I get my love of earthy tones. I have recently discovered a more contemporary style, using more vivid colours whilst studying Certificate 4 in Aboriginal Art and Cultural Practices.
