Jill from Mirigan Art is a proud Nunagal, Goenbal Ngugi woman from Quandamooka Country. Growing up Jill’s mother Nuuna painted everyday and in turn taught her to paint; passing on culture, stories and dreaming. Mirigan means Star in Jandai language, a tribute to Jill’s beautiful mother and the memories she will always have of them together painting and yarning.
I am grateful to work with Jill for KYKOE’s very first collaboration where her beautiful artwork titled Bunbiya Journey is showcased through hair accessories. If you’d like to see more of Jill’s art please find her on Facebook - Mirigan Art or on Instagram @mirigan_art
