Artist statement, 1999I love to do my paintings – I feel all right in my body when I paint the stories of my country, Atnangkere, near Mosquito Bore. My Mountain devil story, my Green pea, Bush tucker, Atwakey (little orange bush tucker), and my Bush seed story. I feel really good in my body when I’m doing these paintings. What do I think about when I’m painting my country? I’m thinking about my family, my daughter, my brothers, my sisters and all my nieces, nephews and my grandchildren. (Croft, Beyond the Pale, 2000)
