Doongal Aboriginal Art - Wanjidari - Local Aboriginal Rainforest Artist

By Doongal Aboriginal Art

29 Oct 2014

Wanjidari means white flower. I was born in 1965. My mother came from central Queensland at a place called Woorabinda and came from the tribe Wadja Wadja. My father came from Lockhart River from the Kuntha Napu tribe. I have been painting since I was 17 and the inspiration for my paintings came from both sides and from my childhood.
When I was growing up I would often go out with my aunts and other family members to collect bush tucker the traditional way. We would look for turtle eggs, goanna, fruit, yams, etc. so I grew up with my culture.
