"I was born in Darwin and grew up at Mistake Creek and Bamboo Springs and then moved to Kununurra and lived at Lily Creek. Afterwards I went to Emu Creek with my mum. We used to catch the bus into Kununurra for school. We lived in the ranch area at Kununurra in the 90s. I followed my mother to do painting. I watched my mother painting when I was small, when she used to sell her paintings at the bakery before Waringarri Arts started. Everyone – my grandpa, my mum and dad – all moved to Waringarri then."
