Born in 1980 Jai began working as an artist in 2007 at the Jambama Aboriginal Art Studio and gallery in Casino. He is proudly Bundjalung.
His style is largely self taught. He draws and paints the old people, haunting images of the ancestors who formed the Bundjalung nation. Jai is a unique artist with the ability to create images of his ancestors that move and speak through their eye bringing into focus the men and women of the past, lost but not forgotten.
Jai experiments with new techniques continuously producing work that evolves and grows with each time he produces new works. He is an inspired young artist and leaves a mark with the work he produces.
He won the peoples choice award in the 2011 Gaagal Exhibition at Yarrawarra
