About

I am an Aboriginal artist and I grew up traditionally but have lived urbanely for the past 20 years and my artwork is a reflection of both. I use traditional styles and techniques with modern mediums. I do original dot paintings and no two are the same even if I use the same story. All of my paintings tell a story and some are based on traditional tales whilst other reflect my personal story or life journey and some are political addressing the issues that our people face today.

Education

I have an Advanced Diploma in Visual and Applied Arts from Taoundi College‚ a TAFE institute.

Exhibitions

I have participate in SALA for the past 10 years and have exhibited all over SA at various venues. I have been a part of a joint exhibition at the SA Museum‚ Tandanya Arts and Cultural Centre‚ The Adelaide City‚ Norwood and St Peters town halls‚ Semaphore and St Peters Libraries‚ Tap Gallery Sydney and various markets around Australia
