Maggie, a Mangala woman based in Port Hedland, uses painting as a means to tell stories of her childhood. Her memories are portrayed via intimate, semi abstract aerial maps of the sites she visited as a child; the station school, dormitories, garden, and local church and dam, located within and adjacent to Myroodah Station, a sheep and cattle station in the West Kimberley region where she was born and grew up.  Through her works Maggie fondly reflects on her time spent schooling, working, fishing and swimming, and collecting bush tucker.
