Award-winning Aboriginal artist paints a picture of her life
As part of NAIDOC Week, Sunshine Coast Libraries are proud to present award-winning Aboriginal artist, De Greer-Yindimincarlie, at Noosa Library.
Hailing from Wiradjuri country in central western New South Wales, De will be visiting the library at 4pm on 7 July 2010, to speak of her fascinating life to date and passion for Aboriginal art.
With an impressive body of work spanning 20 years and being sold worldwide in places like the UK, US, Zimbabwe, Japan and Canada, it's little wonder De won the South East Queensland NAIDOC award 2008 for distinguished services in the visual arts industry.
Inspired by everyday occurrences, De's artworks incorporate both modern and traditional Aboriginal colours and evoke feelings in all who come into contact with them.
She is proud of her ability to bring emotions to the surface through art.
"I pride myself on being able to fill my works with such emotion they can bring a tear to your eye," said De.
Starting her artistic career as a musician, and then working for many years as a graphic designer, and now a world-renowned Aboriginal artist, the Noosa Library showcase of De Greer-Yindimincarlie's amazing life thus far, is not one to be missed.
Bookings are essential - phone Noosa Library on 5442 4411 to secure your place.
National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week is running from July 4 -- 11 2010. For more info, visit www.naidoc.org.au
