“My paintings are about my Aboriginal and Islander cultural interpretations, because I understand that language, dance, song and visual art are the communication techniques of tribal contact with each other. Putting a visual story to my contemporary songs would be in the same context as a Kangaroo Dreaming story painted on bark. It’s a traditional communicating technique for knowledge and morality.”
