Heather Koowootha is a multi-disciplinary artist working in the mediums of printmaking, sculpture, painting, drawing, ceramics, and weaving. Born in Cairns, Heather spent parts of her childhood in Aurukun and the “top end” village, learning from her old people. Her father and grandmother were Wik Mungkan, and her Yidinji/Kuganji mother was a Traditional Owner from Yarrabah and Gordenvale. Heather’s works continue to be inspired by their histories and teachings. 

"This painting is about little children (puk many) receiving their bush education. These are medicinal foods you can eat from the bush: yellow yams, pandanus nuts (good for mothers feeding babies, bones and calcium), bush wild apple (good for teeth and gum medicine) and various collections of berries."
