Spinifex Hill Studios

I am a Noongar yorga (woman) from Perth. I grew up in Balga (Black Boy), a northern suburb of Perth where I spent most of my childhood and adult life. I have been painting and a part of the Spinifex Hill Artists since 2013.  When I first joined the Spinifex Hill Artists I had no previous painting or art experience and I gradually learnt which I enjoy. Painting to me is a stress relief, calm and soothing environment.  I have met a lot of new friends from the Pilbara area. I have great respect and appreciation for their art as well as their friendship. In my art work I reflect and connect my painting to my Aboriginal culture, heritage and beliefs on how we connected to the land, places, animals and people.
