“My name’s Kelvin Allen. I was born in Port Hedland in 1982. My Mum, Nora Allen, she passed away. She was from Warralong and my father, his name is George Sailor, he come from Jigalong. I was happy in Warralong. I did schooling there and in Yandeyarra.
Years ago I came back here [Port Hedland] and I been this side a long time. I used to work in Marble Bar, cutting grasses with machines. I been around playing football, getting the footy with Karntimarta and Punmu boys. We went to Perth and we won a medal.
I been watching my family paint for years. I been watching, waiting. I was thinking about pictures a long time and now I started to put ’em down. “
