Artist and art centre

Leonie was a Wangka woman from Wadeye, one of Australia’s largest Aboriginal communities, located about 420km South West of Darwin. She passed away in late 2017. Leonie’s language was Mari Amu. She was mother of five, and aunty and granny to many! Leonie loved painting and drawing, and did art to relax.

In addition to being a talented artist, Leonie worked for many years with young children at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School, and Wadeye pre-school before retiring in 2013.

Art story

Leonie’s design ‘waves’ was created in 2007. The inspiration for the design came from the waves and ripples of the water at the beach.

The community of Wadeye is about one hour from the beach on a very bumpy road.

You can stand on the beach and look out to the Timor Sea.

Locals love to go fishing and swimming at the beach – but you have to look out for crocs!
