Aulpunda Jean Barr-Crombie is a Traditional Aboriginal and Cultural Artist. On stage, Aunty Jean shared her experience growing up in Birdsville and her career as an artist. Aunty Jean’s art tracks her journey through country as she weaves the old stories with colours of the land in a unique spirit of discovery. She finds beauty in the gnarled tree, and love in the sand against bare feet, a love for country that brings colour and life to her paintings. Through deep listening to the spirit of the land, a spirit that beats in her blood, Jean comes to her art as learner and teacher, bearing the gifts of an ancient culture to share with family, children, grandchildren, and those not yet born.
