Tanya Taylor

I am a descendant of the Kattang Tribe (Barrington Tops. NSW) through my Father and the Worimi Tribe (Foster, NSW) through my Mother.
My work includes a range of Aboriginal contemporary art and some traditional styles.
I like to express my culture with anything from bright colours to earth tones. I am presently exploring sand paintings. I remember watching my aunty when I was very young. It has stayed in my mind how great her landscapes looked and how she always used white sand for the water or lakes and rivers.
I enjoy whittling pieces of wood into Rainbow Serpents with Aboriginal designs. For this I use a knife which was handed down to me by my father. This is very special to me.
