When I paint, I think of my ngurra [Yindjibarndi Country] and how it is so deep in me. Everything that is important comes from the Ngurra Nyujunggamu, the Creation Times that we call the time when the world was soft. There are so many spiritual connections between all living things and the world of Yindjibarndi people. This is what I put in my paintings.
