PROFILE

I was born in Kununurra and lived here all my life except for some schooling in Broome in Years 8 & 9. I have worked at St Joseph's School as a teacher's aid and at Mirima Language centre as a secretary. I also worked at the Women's Centre and I have been their chairperson. At Warinagarri Arts I started as the artist support worker, helping all the old people. I started painting after coming here for a while and helping the old people mix paints.  I completed the ANKA Arts-worker Extension program in 2012 and have learnt many industry skills.  I have worked at the art centre as the Administration and Gallery Assistant and now I am the Dawang Projects Co-ordinator which means I am learning how to curate and conserve artworks. Currently I am the Chair of the Waringarri Aboriginal Arts Board and Vice-Chair of ANKA. I paint and make textiles as often as I can. I have 5 children and 11 grand children. I follow in the footsteps of my elders and learn about Country, culture and art from the old people.
