“My traditional home is at Undoolya which is part of Alice Springs. We won Native Title in 2000, we are part of the Arrernte Nation. I am also part of the Amjatere Nation. My family consisted of four children with one deceased and eight grandchildren as well as three great-grandchildren.

I have been painting for 14 years and my education background is Batchelor of Arts, Associate Diploma in Business Management and Certificate One Tourism. I have lectured in Art, Aboriginal Cross Culture Courses at IAD as well as Aboriginal Cross Culture, History of Central Australia at Remote Health in Alice Springs for Flinders University.

My art also consists of painting logos for Nationals meetings in Alice Springs as well as coordinating painting 30 bin containers for the local town council with the rational owners of Alice Springs. Which we won Territory Tidy town 2007.
