I am a Yolŋu artist, designer and musician living in Mparntwe/Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.
I was born in Katherine in 1983. Because of my spina bifida, I was told he would never walk and would need to use a wheelchair. But thanks to some persistent nurses at Royal Darwin Hospital who made me practice his walking, I developed the strength and confidence to walk on my own.
I was raised in foster care, and after a period of homelessness I moved to Mparntwe/Alice Springs where he is now building my career.
I follow in his father’s footsteps as an artist, studying Visual Arts and Streaming Media at Batchelor Institute.
