“We all have our different styles that speak about our traditional ways, stories and beliefs. I tell my story through prints and paintings. Our life here centres on our relationships with each other and with the land, the sea and the domestic and wildlife animals. My works are a contemporary response to the traditional culture and way of life in my home country”.
