I came to the Pilbara in 1998 from Queensland and this is where I am still living today.<p>

I studied Aboriginal law in Roebourne in 2001.<p>

At the beginning of 2002 I came to the Bujee-Nhoorr-Pu studio in Cossack to help with the ongoing establishment of the Art Gallery. It was then that I realized art was a big interest in my life.<p>

I developed skills along the way and I feel I have a good eye for art. Im very enthusiastic in my work.<p>

I was born in Roebourne where I am still living today. My Tribe is the Yindjibarndi Tribe.<p>

I have been involved with art since 2002, but I have always been interested since I was a young child.<p>

What got me painting was browsing through other peoples work.<p>

I enjoy drawing as well as painting, but painting I enjoy the most.<p>

I like to experiment with different techniques rather than stick to the same pattern.<p>
