I come Kurdal, Kruz and Dhangal (dugong) totem through my parents. I lived and grew on Kubin Village Mua island and it is situated in the near western cluster. My art work describes the stories told by our ancestors through their dreams, which then pass down by our fore father's to father to son. This transcripts in our mind, then the stories and put into paint and carving.
