I would like to mention a few people who have taught me and inspired my work over the years…
All of the current and past artists of Bangarra Dance Theatre. Many thanks for your spirit, passion and dedication to passing on our culture and knowledge.
Yolande Brown, who encouraged me to go ahead with my Weaving for Oxfam Australia event in 2012. Your a constant inspiration in so many ways!
Other dancing inspirations Deborah Brown, Patrick Thaiday, Sidney Saltner, Elma Kris and Jhuny Boy Borja; all of whom I look up to and admire.
My Yapa Rosalee Pearson, an exceptionally inspiring and talented artist from North East Ahnem land. – Also a beautiful person who I am humbled to have had the opportunity to know and work with.
Brian Martin, Arnel Davis and the traditional landowners of the Gunung-Willam-Balluk at the Indigenous Education Centre – Kangan Batman Tafe – Broadmedows.
I would also like to acknowledge the Yirrkala Community of North East Arnhem Land and my teacher Aunty Kathy Marika, for sharing with me traditional Arnhem Land style of weaving.
