Fabric and Shell Earrings by Annabell Amagula
Created by Anindilyakwa Artist Annabell Amagula
“I grew up in Angurugu, I grew up with my father and mother, when I was 6 year old I would sit and watch my grandmother make bush bags from pandanas. When I was 10 I started making baskets. When I was 12 my great great grandmother would take us out to collect the colours for pandanas, that’s how I learned, from my elders.
I used to watch my father paint and I learned to paint copying my father.
When we at the art fair (DAAF) and I see everyone going crazy for our t-shirts and scarf, I feel happy and proud. It comes from our country, I like wearing it and it’s good they like wearing it too.
