I am a Lardil woman born at Baralkia and living at Gununa, Mornington Island. I started painting to join the rest of my family at Mirndiyan Gununa. I love having a bit of a yarn with them as I paint. 

I love to go camping at Picnic Point, that's where I spend most of my time with my 5 children and 11 grandchildren. At Picnic Point you can still see the turtles come up to lay their eggs and the little ones rushing to shore to get to safety.

Bunbudgee is about the white bush dove. Bunbudgee means white bush dove in Lardil. This is my totem from my Mother's Father.
