Artist statement

My country, Boundary Bore. Long time, we go hunting for bush tucker. Everywhere bush tucker, we collected it for the children. Fill up coolamons with bush banana, bush plum, bush potatoes, bush medicine, goanna, porcupine, rabbits. Walking with my sisters, no shoes, no car, nothing.
