Jacinta Undalghumen

I live in the North Kimberley WA. I’m in Wyndham at the moment, I have a house and a job here. I have a partner, three grown up kids, and five granddaughters - all my family are in Kalumburu.

I’m a Kwini person on both sides; my mother came from Oombulgarri (Forest River) and my father is from Kalumburu. He used to work on the main road to Wyndham. They found each other, came back to Kalumburu, got married and had kids - and here we are! I grew up in Kalumburu most of my time. Growing older I went to Oombulgarri to meet my Mum’s side of the family. Good fishing for barramundi there; and I did a lot of hunting with my Grandfather. I love going out bush - hunting, camping, fishing, swimming, walking.

When I’m in Kalumburu I go to the Strong Women's Centre and paint the things I remember my family doing when I was small - like my uncles carving and painting boabs; the artifacts they did in those days, that have carried on to me. Doing art makes me feel good - I always feel relieved when I come up with something good on the canvas!
