I am a strong proud man from Ulupna Clan of Yorta Yorta and Wiradjuri tribes.
My Great Great Great Grandmother, Queen Yamuk, (meaning mother or Aunt, AKA Teresa Clements nee Middleton was Yorta Yorta Tribe.
My Great Great Great Grandfather, William Clements was Wiradjuri tribe.
My Great Great Grandmother, Margaret Tucker was stolen generation, survivor, actress, singer and a strong activist.
I am here because of their strength and their survival and also my strong Mother and family.
I was part of the Torch project while I spent some time incarcerated. This taught me to be strong in my culture and encouraged me to paint my knowledge, while being supported by other Aboriginal men who also painted.
I want to show my pride in my cultural as respect for my family and my Ancestors.
