Nancy McDinny was born in a canoe in 1958 on Fetrel Island, between Managoora Station and Vanderlin Island. She is Garrwa and Yanyuwa. Nancy’s art career spans fifteen years; she is also a linguist. She paints about the rich traditional life that she, her parents and grandparents lived including hunting, harvesting bush tucker and travelling. Her artwork also recounts her family’s direct experiences of European settlement in the Gulf region, and the ongoing issues confronting the community today with mines impacting on the natural environment and people’s way of life.
