    I grew up with art. It has been a part of me from my ancestors, I suppose its in my blood. I began practicing art in the 1990s. The older I get I gain more patience in everything I do. I draw my inspiration from my own life experiences such as hunting and looking at older carvings.

    My love for beadwork and inspiration comes from Papa God and through the designs I reflect upon my Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage. My work also represent the strength and endurance of all women in the Torres Strait and beyond, for whom I create such beautiful pieces.

    Art is important to me because it is a way of keeping knowledge of my culture and identity alive. This way I can share with others who I am.

    Art to me is an opportunity to express my culture to the world. My grandfather was my inspiration. He was a very good drawer which is where I first got my interest in art.
