I'm a proud Kooma and Kamilaroi woman who has recently moved backed to Brisbane (where I grew up). I've spent the last couple of years in the desert working as a gallery assistant and working on exhibitions at Maruku Arts at Uluru. I loved learning all about Anangu culture from the artists and the elders first hand.
After a few years I moved up north and worked for Warradjan Culture Centre in Kakadu, after being shut for a few years I helped them to get the art back on the walls, the tourists in, and the local artists back in creating art and sharing culture!
Working in community has shown me the effects these sorts of organisations can have on mob. Being able to give the opportunity to help these artists to not just create art and tell their story, but also support their families was very fulfilling and something I'll always enjoy and continue to do in my work with Magpie Goose.
Over the past few months I've been working at Aboriginal Art Co, and helping out with a bit of posting for Magpie Goose. I've recently been offered an expanded role with MG - as the operations manager! You might also see me on the instagram stories... So if you've got a question about something - I'll be the one helping you out on Facebook, Instagram, and on the emails!
I love that MG provides income for mob through their art and story telling. I love the uniqueness and the boldness of the brand. I wear Magpie Goose every day, not because it's my uniform but because I genuinely love the feeling of wearing art, and art made by mob!
