Liddy Miller

Liddy Miller

Liddy in Mt Doreen, and spent her younger years living with her family in bush camps. She regularly visited her country around Mt Theo, west of Yuendumu. She had lived in Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community located north-west of Alice Springs, in the NT of Australia. She started painting on canvas not long after Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in Yuendumu, was established in 1985 and Liddy is now one of its most senior members. Liddy painted her father’s Jukurrpa dreaming stories which relate directly to her land, its features and animals. These stories were passed down to her by her father and her grandfather and their parents before them for millennia.

” I paint my father Japangardi’s Dreaming and my grandfather’s Dreaming. Mt Theo is my father’s country and that’s what I’m painting the special Dreamings from. The Dreamings I paint are bush tomato and goanna; goanna likes to fight and is a lover boy. And I paint seed pods and bush potato and hopping mouse. There are lots of stories…I paint strongly.’
