When did you start creating artworks?
What inspires you?
I love making Tjanpi because it’s a way I can show those people who don’t live out bush what it’s like. They can understand what sort of animals and plants we have and the things we do everyday. I love doing it because it’s relaxing too.
Tell us about your work in this year’s Revealed?
The work I made is a flat sculpture Ninu (Bilby). I wanted to make this one because I had never made a flat sculpture before so it was good for me to learn how. I made the Ninu after talking to the older women in Warakurna. I have never seen a Ninu out bush, there’s not many left anymore, and I wanted to make one so people remember them.
What’s up next after Revealed?
I am going to work on a large sculpture for Tjanpi that will go to a big museum in Canberra.
