Fiona Omeenyo History and Collections

Statement "I'm a member of the Lockhart River Art Gang. We're a group of Aboriginal Artists from the east coast of Cape York in Far North Queensland. I mainly do paintings on canvas, although sometimes I do printing and sculpture. The paintings I'm painting now are about traditional family and everyday things. I paint about my home and country through my painting. No matter where you go, you're still carrying the stories that elders and family tell you and memories for a life-time."
