Cathy WardKira Kiro Artists and Waringarri Arts
“I grew up mostly around the old people. I was raised by Peggy and Mr A. Griffiths who taught me right from wrong and raised me to be a good mum to my kids. They taught me about culture and painting.
I great up at Waringarri Arts from a little kid. I remember running around the centre when I was 6 years old. I started painting when I was 10 which I enjoyed. I also work in ceramics and textiles.
I want to pursue textiles for now and maybe in the future I will start painting again. I have also become a board member for Waringarri Arts. Both my father and mother’s side of the family are strong artists.
My goal is to be an artist for the rest of my life and teach my kids about their culture and passing down knowledge.”
