Artist statement

Painting makes me think of going out bush in Blackstone. We had no cars, no shops, ate bushfoods – goanna, kampurarpa rabbit, honey ants. My paintings make me think back to when I lived in the bush with my family. They are like a memory and a map of the country, my grandfather’s Country Witapi Wara.
