Artist Profile

Lily was born Prince Regent River area c. 1921.  From her father’s country, Woombangowangoorr, she went with her mother and family to Mitchell Plateau.  She married Jack Karadada and eventually settled in Kalumburu where she lived with her huge extended and very talented family.

Lily is one of Australia’s most important contemporary aboriginal artists.  Whilst she varies her subject matter, she has never compromised on style.  Lily’s paintings are instantly recognisable.  Lily paints Wandjina – with varied totems, rain dotting, lightning (Black Wandjina), turtles, cave pools with bubbles – all different but all Lily Karadada.

Lily was awarded the Australian Centenary Medal for Contribution to Art in 2003.

A lovely lady, with a wonderful, infectious laugh – once met, never forgotten.

Artist's Description

I have painted the Wandjina as it is in the caves in my country. Those caves are very wet, with water bubbling up everywhere – that’s the name my father gave me – my bush name that Jackie calls me – Mindindil – that means bubbles. These one Rainmaker send down rain to make everything grow. Lots of cave rocks round this place. And those bush turkeys – all for good tucker and for good life.

Loving how Kirstie finds brilliant artists and shares not only the artwork, but the back story of both the piece AND the artist. You can tell she absolutely loves Aboriginal art, and she has such great rapport with the artists.
