Tic Tac

I live in the Tiwi College community at Pickertaramoor, Melville Island, NT. I work at the college as a T.A., teacher assistant, with the senior girls. As a connection to my Tiwi Culture I enjoy painting traditional designs that I have learnt from my big sister Marlene Brooks. My style of painting is typical of Tiwi designs, with strong geometric patterns, painted in earth colours of ochres, white, and charcoal blacks.
Both my Grandparents were artists and I often think of them when I paint. My Aminayi (grandpa), Ali Miller, made ceremony poles, and my Muningo (nanna), Polly Miller, made traditional Tunga bark baskets.
