Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Kuku Yalanji & Kubin Village country

My inspiration for my artwork is my family, my Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and my tropical surroundings. I’m very influenced by pop culture, animation and modern design. I feel that my artwork is my gift to help others see the beauty of Aboriginal culture, appreciate Indigenous issues, and bring joy to people through colourful art and designs.

While I was born and bred in Brisbane, my heritage is from North Queensland. My mother is from the Kuku Yalanji people in the Daintree/Mossman area where our totem is the crocodile. My father comes from Kubin Village on Moa Island in the Torres Strait Islands where our totem is the sea eagle.
