Lily Pads by Dulcie Williams

My design is the lily pads in the waterholes. The lily pads are along the waterhole in Oombulgurri.

Oombulgurri was a small community. It got shut down, and everyone had to leave. Some moved to Wyndham. I came to Kalumburu.

There’s biggest mob of waterholes in Oombulgurri - fresh water waterholes, no crocs. It’s beautiful.

I painted the lily pads because I like drawing them. It reminds me of my favourite place. Everytime I go to the waterhole, I look at the lily pads. And I just jump in the waterhole and smell the lily pads. They smell good. I dive under the water and forget all my troubles. It’s my happy place.

Dulcie created this design during a Magpie Goose textile design workshop at Kalumburu Strong Women's Centre in August 2018.
