Kaya - Hello. My name is Buffie and I am djerpin. I would love to share a little about myself and my journey. I am a Noongar Yorga - Aboriginal Women of the Noongar Nation, born in Albany, Western Australia. My family connections are from Gnowangerup. A small town in Western Australia.
I love spending time with those that I love and have a strong bond with my family. Much of my work is greatly influenced by family, cultural connections, my spirituality and relationships.
I can express myself whole heartedly through my artwork. I believe art is one of the greatest tools to help with any mental and emotional issues. I have always loved painting, drawing and experimenting in a variety of art mediums. I am especially drawn to the challenge of conveying to others, through art, how I am influenced by my spirituality, my culture and my life experiences. I use art as a platform for storytelling.
We all have a story to tell and art is one of the most creative forms to share our stories.
I create commissioned pieces, both digital and acrylic paint on canvas. I create artworks by taking inspiration from my client and what I see and feel around me through my spirituality and what connects me to my culture. I especially love using Aboriginal symbols to portray a story and narrative.
