Location: Tiwi Islands, Australia

Born at Nguiu, Bathurst Island, in 1952 I have worked as an artist for over 40 years and have worked independently for over 15 years. In 2005 I established the first remote based private gallery – Purrikikini (Owl Man). I am probably most well known for my role in creating my first enterprise Tiwi Design. While attending Xavier Boys School at Nguiu, I was taught how to cut woodblocks for printing. My earliest prints date from the late 1960s. In 1969, together with Giovanni Tipungwuti and with the help of our teacher Madeleine Clear, I established Tiwi Designs, to produce printed fabric which incorporated traditional designs. Through my art practice I have traveled to New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Canada, and was artist-in-residence at Flinders University in South Australia. I work in carved and painted wooden sculpture, lino and textile prints, etchings and lithographs. I have exhibited widely. My business Purrikikini has supplied private commissions to major Australian businesses
