Hi my name is Annette Lormada. My bush name is Bingarli. I was born in Fitzroy Crossing Hospital 19/1/1963 and speak two languages Walmajarri and Nyikina. I grew up in Fitzroy and started going to Fitzroy Crossing primary school then high School. After finishing school, I worked as an shop keeper at the UAM mission store living in Junjuwa then I moved to Nookanbah where I worked at the shop in 1990 and and a home maker. My Mum and Dad told me stories about the two dogs, that’s why l paint my dreaming. Now I’m on Dialysis but l still know my stories that’s why l paint’.
Annette Lormada started coming to Mangkaja Studio a few years back. In that short time she has encapsulated a legacy, pushing colour and imagery in a unique and dynamic way to tell stories about her fond memories of growing up by the Fitzroy River. Annette’s repertoire of whimsical fishy creatures describes the creation stories she learnt as a child and the food they caught and still do that are so good to eat.Share
