I am a Waddi Waddi woman
with family connections to
Wergia and Wemba Wemba.
I was born in Balranald, my traditional country is the
Swan Hill and Moulamein area
– where my family still
live and have strong ties to the river and the bush.
I have always lived in the Mallee and river country of
the Murray and Murrumbidgee rivers. I love the red sand, the beautiful stunted forms of the mallee trees and the soft grey/blue of the saltbush.
I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. The elements of the land and bush feature in most of my paintings.
I lived in Bendigo and Eaglehawk on the traditional country ofthe Dja Dja Wrung people but have now returned to my birthplace of Balranald.
I have a strong Christian faith and believe that God has given me his gift of being able to put my thoughts onto canvas for others to see and enjoy.
You will find a small gold cross in each of my paintings to symbolize the presence of God with me while I painted.
