When I Walked Long Way With My Family

This painting depicts the time when Biddy was a young girl. She walked with her father, three mums, half-sisters and one brother about nine hundred kilometres from the Western Desert near Kiwirrkurra to Sturt Creek Station near Halls Creek. They travelled for months through the harsh desert country, surviving solely on bush tucker and the waterholes that gave them drinking water. At Sturt Creek Station, Biddy and her family lived near the river for years until she was a young woman.
