Sophia Alone

Spinifex Hill Studios

“My name is Sophia Alone. I was born and raised in Hedland. I am a proud Ngarla woman from the De-grey area. My ancestors are Makanykarra. I have decided to paint because I wanted to [and] it’s nice to express stories through painting [the] life around Hedland, it’s what I know. People who are present and who have left us are well known [to] our people [and are] special in my heart and if I could I would love to give a glimpse [of that].” -Sophia Alone
