Lisa is a Yolngu woman who grew up on country and was taught the old ways by her grandparents and parents. She is now married to a Garrwa man in Borroloola, but continues to celebrate her Yolngu culture.

Lisa’s distinctive paintings depict life on country and ceremonial practices that go all the way back to the Dream-Time. 

In this painting she records the practice of collecting honey from Sugar Bag Bees – the elderly couple pictured are her grandparents.
