Artist Statement:
I learnt how to paint from the old people, they used to
teach us at school. My grandfather, Jerry Kerinauia was an artist, we have the book at home.That’s why I decided to become an artist, to carry on the family tradition.
My mother’s uncle is an artist too. His name is Yiwala.
He is half Tiwi, half Kunwingku – like me.
