Wakka Wakka & Willi-Willi Nations

Originally from Central Queensland on the Dawson and Burnett Rivers (my Mother’s country), I moved recently to Far North Queensland to live with family in the Cooktown Region.

My Father was originally from Vanuatu.

I am 1 of 13 children, we older children were raised on a cattle station in Central Queensland then later moved to a small gold mining town also in Central Queensland to further our schooling.

Art has always been a big part of my growing up and I learnt at a young age from my dad how to sketch, paint and sculpt.

We have very talented artists in our extended families, who now reach all the way to the horizon.
