I was born in Albury NSW. I only found out I was Aboriginal later in life. My family did not speak about it, and so never told me. I have discovered my Ancestors were Stolen Generation from the Hay area, but I am still on my journey to discover more of my Aboriginality.
I began painting while incarcerated, as part of “The Torch” project. This is where I embraced my ancestry, and used my art as a way of connecting to culture. It is very therapeutic and calming for me.
