"My Mother, Lilly Kemarre, taught me to paint. She likes to paint her Mother's and Father's country from the old days, when they used to live
off of the land."
Julieanne's painting's are inspired by her Mother's stories of the old days, walking and living on their land, and also of her own experience
of life out here in Alyawarr country.
"The landscape changes during the different seasons in the year. I paint the dried flowers and bushes from last season as well as the new
plants that come after the rain. These plants have special meanings and uses for us. I have been taught how to read the country, and now I
teach my children these skills."
