I am an Aboriginal woman of the Djugun,Yawuru and Bardi Jawi Tribes, who owns and operates my business that respects each and all the different Aboriginal groups and Non-Indigenous.
 

I have hosted Art exhibitions, sold at markets, invited to be apart of numerous exhibitions, invited to collaborate and invited to work with schools.

I was taught by mother and now my children learn and sell their artworks.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“We had a great time participating online from the Geraldton office. I really enjoyed learning about the meaning of the art symbols (and even researched a few more…)

I also thought it was great that Sammy took the opportunity to bring her daughter along and continue her story and knowledge that way.”

“The class was really good and it was very educational.”

“I really enjoyed the class held by Sammy, she is a lovely down to earth person and explained in a very easy-going way what the key symbols were in the paintings.  It was a very relaxing experience to let our brushes and sticks capture our life story and the things that are very important to us. With no plan of what I was going to paint, my life just sort of flowed onto the canvas.

“It was a fantastic session, Sammy did an excellent job balancing creativity with cultural learning.”

“It was great and I’ve learnt so much. I’ve just collected my son from school and told him all about it and what my picture means. He was pretty impressed with the story but was more amazed that I painted it! I think that is praise from a 4 year old.”

"I couldn’t believe how quickly the one hour session went, but also how much we were able to capture and retain.”
