Bessie Daylight

Warmun Art Centre

Bessie Daylight is the daughter of well-known Warmun artist Betty Carrington who, with other senior artists, taught Bessie how to collect, grind and paint with natural ochre. Bessie paints her traditional country of Texas Downs and the Ngarranggarni (Dreaming) stories connected to Texas, as well as the living elements within this country. Bessie uses a diverse range of colours and paints with her own unique vision. She is strong in culture and law, as taught by her mother.
