“I am a proud Dunghutti man. I was born and raised in Kempsey.
I started painting about 8 years ago. I was inspired by my surroundings and by the stories I was told by my elders and by my family.
I am a contemporary artist and I like to paint my experiences through life, what it has taught me and also about both traditional and present times. I cherish my culture. Every chance I get I like to get out and learn about the land and pick up on my culture and family history so that one day I will be able to pass it on to my children.
I love painting – it eases my mind when I think too much about life and what’s going on around me. It is soothing and a way to escape reality for hours at a time: it’s great to set the mind free and start feeling good about yourself again.
I take great pride in my work and in being an Aboriginal man. I love what I can create and being able to tell stories through my art is an awesome feeling.”
