PROFILE

I was born in Kununurra and I went to school in Broome.  I first began work as a trainee broadcaster and journalist in 1990.  I also did a few months at the Waringarri Aboriginal Arts Centre and enjoyed the little time I spent there.  I've worked at the Wyndham Super Market and Tuckerbox store in Kununurra for several years.  I've been painting on and off for many years now and began exploring ceramics in 2016.  I'm carrying on my parents, Peggy and Alan Griffiths’ stories that were handed down to my parents and then to me.  Both my parents are famous artists in the Kimberley but most importantly, they are my traditional teachers.  I too can keep our tradition alive and hand the stories of our ancestors and how our Country came to be, down to the next generation and generations to come.  I do this with great pride and honour.  I am now an accomplished ceramic artist and have exhibited at the Shepparton Art Gallery, Mundaring Art Centre and the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.
