Isabella Taylor - Aboriginal artist

My Name is Isabella Taylor and I was born on Roxby Downs Station in Outback South Australia, before uranium was found there. My father and grandparents were full blood Kookatha people. My mother's people and grandparents were full blood Antikirinya, Yankuntjatjara, Pitjantjatjara and Arrernte, including Irish from my mum's side.

When I was a small child I remember traveling from Roxby Downs to Woomera, then to Andamooka by camel and buggy or camel cart. The trips were slow and relaxing and I was able to jump off and pick a wild-flower or wild peach I spotted or do things that one can't normally do, when traveling by car. At night I slept under the stars nestled between my parents or grandparents.

They would tell me stories about the many stars, the moon and the sounds of crickets, animals scurrying about the darkness or the occasional howling dingo. The only light aside from the moon and stars was the beautiful big fire crackling away. I always made sure I was in the middle of everyone or nearest to the fire!

My Painting is what I have seen around from my childhood until now. I paint the way I see things in the beautiful creation, with traditional dots and stories. I try to stick to the colours of nature to keep the true identity of my little characters.

I now live in Port Augusta, with the beautiful Flinders Ranges and Desert Lands as my back yard.

Thankyou for reading my brief story and appreciating my work.
