Artist Profile

Grace Brown was born in Victoria and is a very proud Wurundjeri woman. Woiwurrung is her language group and is shared by the other tribal territory groups and clans within the Woiwurrung territory.

Grace has been on a journey to find her heritage on her grandmother’s side and with many years and much research, she now knows where on country she belongs.

She lived in North East Victoria near Healesville for most of her life but now resides on the Gold Coast in Queensland.

With many years of experience with different mediums and subjects, she now has dedicated her life to aboriginal art and her culture to find herself and learn everything about her culture and dreamtime stories from her community and her Elders.

Grace studied an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Arts Course in 2020 – 2021 and hopes to teach her craft, culture and indigenous dreamtime stories to the next generation.

In 2021 The Gold Coast University Hospital commissioned a large painting by Grace for the boardroom at the hospital. (Permission given by  Yugambeh Elders)

Many collectors around the world now hold Grace Brown paintings in their collections. Her latest painting sold to a private collector in New York USA titled “The Heart of Australia’.

Artwork Description

This highly detailed traditional dot painting is from the Desert Wildflower Series by Grace Brown. It is painted on quality canvas with a texture reminiscent of the Australian desert.

For Aboriginal Australians, the Cockatoos are treated with great respect. They are acknowledged for their important part in the cycle of birth, death and rebirth of plants in the landscape.

Grace’s painting shows how they come close and then they are invited to eat during feasting times when food is plentiful, and in turn they help to spread the seeds of native plants for next season.

In this painting the birds are linked with the sacredness of the seed and the continuous rebirth and fertility of the land.
