“I'm a proud Kooma & Kamilaroi women who's spent the last few years living in the Northern Territory in different art/cultural centres, working on exhibitions and art gallery operations. Working in community has shown me the effects these organisations can have. 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.”
