Wendy’s artworks celebrate our 60,000 year old Yindjibarndi culture and our continuing management and care for our West Pilbara tableland country.

I know my Ngurra. I know its Laws. I am an Yindjibarndi Custodian, old now, but strong in my thinking and my life. So I have painted here, my country after fire. The rain will come. When it comes everything will grow again. It has done this since the beginning of time and will go on doing this forever.”
