Laurel Robinson

Laurel Robinson

My name is Laurel Briggs Robinson I was born in Mooroopna Victoria and I am a proud Yorta Yorta – Wurunjeri woman. I grew up in Shepparton where I attended school up until my teen years.

I joined Kaiela Arts gallery and I realized my hidden feelings I had in art and the memories of my childhood. I do love working with the other elders and exchanging stories, I think its important that we pass our stories onto the younger generations.

I went to Melbourne and worked as a telephonist, then went to Sydney NSW and work for the Aboriginal medical service for 40 years then returned home to Shepparton.
