Pepequita Lane

I was born in Brisbane Queensland.  My Father was from the Stolen Generations, and removed from Cherbourg in 1965 when he was 4 years old.  Like him, I didn’t know much about my culture, but I learnt a lot when I lived with my Auntie, years later.  She was very connected to her culture.

After dancing with the Bangara Dance Company at the Sydney Opera House, I began to discover more about who I was and my connections to my Aboriginality.

In 2020 I moved to Ballart with my family, and have been painting and selling my artwork every since.
