Katie was born at Texas Downs Station and was fortunate to have an education at Beagle Bay.  She relocated to Warmun after her schooling and began teaching the children on the Community – an occupation which she is still involved with today.

Katie comes from a family of talented artists – her aunts Lena Nyadbi and Goody Barrett introduced her to painting, and she was encouraged by her brother, International Artist Churchill Cann, and other established artists.  Her husband is renowned artist, Tommy Carroll.

Katie not only has a style of her own which is varied, bold and yet often whimsical (as in her “Devil Dog” work), but she is meticulous in method and fastidious in detail.  Her paintings are invariably accompanied by a Ngarrangkarni (Dreamtime) story.

She has participated in many Exhibitions, collected by the National Gallery of Australia and Parliament House Collection – most definitely a collectable artist for the investor or those who enjoy a beautiful piece of art on their wall.

There is a big hill north of Turkey Creek at the Argyle turnoff called Pompeii’s Pillar – it can be seen for miles around. It was a landmark used by the white people when they first came to the Kimberley, for droving cattle and for meeting up. For the Gija people, this has always been an important place for Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming). This is the Dreaming for the Blue Tongue Lizard (Loomoogoo) – a secret Women’s Business dreaming place. The pillar has a small split in it which some say represents the divide between Gija and Mirriuwong Country.
