I currently reside at St Paul’s village on Mua Island and am an artist with Moa Arts – Ngalmun Lagau Minaral Arts at Kubin Village. I have been making art since school and was taught weaving from my mum and aunties as well as other art work. My focus is now on weaving and jewellery making.

In 2011, I was commended for my ghost net basket at the Gab Titui Cultural Centre Indigenous Art Award. Since then more people are recognising my work which makes me proud.

Since working with Ngalmun Lagau Minaral Arts I have learnt a lot of different styles and techniques including lino-cut prints and painting. I love making my art and it gives me the opportunity to do more and teach others.
