Mangkaja Arts

Peter Skipper and Mona Chuguna grew me up in Fitzroy Crossing on the Mission here. I went to school at the old mission school here in Fitzroy.

Found a partner, a Bunuba woman and live here in Fitzroy Crossing together.   I worked on Jubilee and Quanbun station, working in the stock camps.

After stations I shifted to work building houses in Kenangi, I was the training foreman with NSP and CDP programs building all the houses in our Kenangi community.

I started painting around 2002, I developed my own style, they taught me the art of boomerang making and I learned from Mona and Skipper.

My work looks at the history for Indigenous people and the station history, all the work we did on the story.

I’m a respectable person, a good man.  Known to everyone in Fitzroy Crossing.
