Mulganai, Emma Hollingsworth
“From a young age, I knew I wanted to be an artist. My mother said before I could even walk, I was drawing on just about anything I could find- including the walls, and when I came of age, I began taking it more seriously. It took me a few years to learn and develop my own style, but I did whatever I could to paint and learn more about my culture.
I grew up travelling Australia with my family and visiting many Aboriginal communities and a lot of my works today reflect all that I have seen and experienced. My parents were both Aboriginal pastors, so growing up was an adventure, as we constantly moved and travelled to places all across Australia doing missionary work in Aboriginal communities.
I find inspiration from my aunties and uncles who are also heavily involved in the arts and cultural sector in Australia.
I also grew up visiting the local Aboriginal Art Gallery in the town of Lockhart which is where some of my mob is from. A few of the mob regularly display their works there; such as the Omeenyo’s, the Accoom’s and the Pascoe’s. Seeing these beautiful artworks at a young age really inspired me to follow in their footsteps.”
