About

Jeani Rangi was born at Old Cherrabun Station near the Fitzroy River. Her mother and father came out
from the desert before she was born. Jeani grew up with one sister and two brothers though they have
since passed away. She has two daughters and three sons who all live in Fitzroy Crossing. Her parents
used to take her hunting when she was young and teach her how to live off the land.
Jeani is a Walmajarri woman who lives in Mindi Rardi Community and paints at Mangkaja Arts Resource
Centre. She paints her country, which keeps her memories strong. While she paints she remembers how
they lived, hunting for food and living off the land.
Jeani also paints her mother and fathers’ country from stories she was told about how they walked out
from the desert and into the ca􀆩le country where they worked for Kartiya(White People)
