Tulli Stevens is a 23-year-old Gumbaynggirr artist living in Mullaway on the Mid North Coast. Growing up in such a beautiful place, surrounded by nature, has been one of the main inspirations in Tulli’s art, this has created a deep appreciation of nature and of culture within her. Her paintings reflect the complex, elemental beauty of patterns in nature, community connections, family and her journey.
She believes that art can be a form of meditation and self-connection, this is reflected in the intricacy of her work. Tulli sees the process of creating art as more important than the finished piece, this process allows you to focus your attention while also expressing your emotions.
Tulli teaches art workshops up and down the coast, as well as inland, showing both children and adults the importance of using art as a form of therapy to relive stress and anxieties. If you would like to meet Tulli in person and chat about her work you can find her at the local markets on weekends.
