Juluwarlu Art Group

Courtney is a Yindjibarndi and Kurruma woman living in Roebourne. She started painting with acrylics and watercolour in high school, and began painting with Juluwarlu Art Group around the age of 18 or 19. She has taken part in workshops such as the Water Corporation animation project, for which she contributed a painting about Barrimirndi [water serpent] creating the Fortescue River during Ngurra Nyujunggamu [when the world was soft].

Courtney paints, weaves baskets, and makes earrings. She likes making art because it allows her to learn about culture from her Elders. In addition to being an artist, Courtney also works at Juluwaru’s Ganalili Centre as a team leader.
