Alison Burgu

Mowanjum Art and Culture Centre

Alison is the second eldest daughter of Mowanjum artist and elder Statesman, Roger Burgu. As a six- year-old Alison appeared in Michael Edol’s award winning film LaiLai, which focuses on traditional Aboriginal Culture in the Worrorra homelands near Doubtful Bay.

When the community learnt to paint at the Mowanjum Hall, Alison leant to apply “different backgrounds and ways to use the paint.” She adds, “I used old people’s style first (like in the caves) and now I have improved, and have my own way. I am satisfied where I am.”
