Lucy Yarawanga

Biography

Bulanjdjan Lucy Yarawanga is an experienced Gurr-goni textile artist, who predominately works at Bábbarra Women’s Centre. She works with both lino and screen printing techniques, with her textile designs often referencing her ancestral stories, including various depictions of Bawaliba (Djinkarr spirit woman). Lucy’s painting style, like her personality, is bold and to the point. As well as her native Gurr-goni language – one of the least commonly spoken languages in Arnhem Land, Lucy also speaks another eight Maningrida languages.
