“I’m from Punmu. I’ve been painting quite a while. Good while. About a long time ago, she (Gabrielle from Martumili) came out with canvas and painting to Jigalong and I seen that old peoples painting at the river bed, in the creek but I was sick that day. This is when I just start. My aunty (Jakayu Biljabu) taught me how to do painting, a couple of years ago. That[s] how I learned. I do Martumili painting. I do painting about my country, my birth area. It’s Wantili, well 25.”
