How Artworks Are Sent
Ochre / Kimberley artworks are shipped on canvas or linen, already stretched, ready to hang unless stated otherwise.
Acrylic artworks are shipped on canvas or linen un-stretched, rolled up in a cardboard tube unless stated otherwise.
These artworks will need to be stretched on a stretcher board before hanging.
This can be done by nearly any picture framer (highly recommended) or you can DIY if you’re confident in your handiwork.
There are numerous "how to" videos on YouTube showing you how to achieve this.
Mark was born in Derby in 1968. He resides in Turkey Creek and is the former Chairperson of Warmun Art Centre. He is a wonderful ambassador for his Community and the traditional ochre art of the area. Mark is well educated and an incredibly talented Traditional ochre artist. His charcoal sketches and figurative acrylic works are testimony of his ability in any sphere / medium of artworks.
He has been taught the stories of his land by his mother, artist Nancy Nodea, and paints her country, Texas Downs, and his father’s country around Cherabun Station. Mark’s father is Hanson Boxer, a Walmajarrie man, and this enables Mark to extend his content to embrace both Gija land and his father’s country around Yakanarra (an excision of Go Go Station via Fitzroy Crossing) and Cherabun Station. His minimal and sometimes flamboyant style gives him scope for large works. He is undoubtedly one of the most naturally talented Australian artists.
Mark’s design won the 2002 Royal Australian Mint International Award for Pure Silver Collector Coin. The Royal Australian Mint has only released ten such coins since 1983. He has participated in Group Exhibitions and his first Solo in September 2003 at the prestigious Alison Kelly Gallery in Melbourne was a sell out success. In 2013, Mark beat a host of brilliant Western Australian artists to take out first prize in the $20,000 Mid West Art Award for Excellence. In 2020, Mark‘s solo exhibition at Short Street Gallery in Broome sold out on the opening night.

This story was told to me by my grandfather on my father’s side. When my grandfather was a boy, they were living in the desert South of Yakinarra (on the NT side of the border). The tribes would move around the desert looking for food and water. One family wanted to keep moving on and left the area where my Grandfather’s family was – they told them they were going looking for food and water and then they would come back but after a week or so they still hadn’t returned.
My grandfather’s family were getting worried so they went looking for the family. They called out and looked everywhere, they even burnt fires so the family would know where they were but they couldn’t find them.
Finally after a couple of years they came across two billabongs surrounded by bush onions plants. They instinctively knew that they had found the lost tribe because there were never any bush onions around those billabongs but the family had eaten bush onions before they went missing and therefore the seeds were in their stomachs when they perished and this made the plants grow. The people sat around the billabongs and cried for their family. Bush onion plants still grow in this special place today.
I have painted the billabongs in memory of the lost tribe.
