Artist Profile

Mona Ramsay 
Mona was born at Old Greenvale Station 1938.  Her language is Kitja and she is the eldest daughter of the late Timmy Timms, a celebrated Elder and International Artist. 
When everyone from Old Greenvale Station relocated to the new Bow River Homestead which Sam and Maggie Lilly had built, combining Adavale and Greenvale Stations, Mona carried out household duties. Mona’s father Timmy was Head Stockman and “right hand man” for Sam.  Mona “grew up” (raised/looked after) the three Lilly children whilst Maggie was assisting her husband to build the mighty Bow River Station (a million acre cattle empire) from the “grass roots”.  
The “Bow” was granted to the Timms’ family (some time after Sam and Maggie onsold it) by the Government, with Timmy as Chairperson.  At Tim’s funeral, Maggie, then 90 plus, proudly said to the mourners “Your family is my family, and mine is yours”.
After the death of her father, the full responsibility of running Bow River Station was put firmly on Mona’s shoulders. 
Mona commenced painting in 1996. Her painting centres on Bow River, Bedford Downs station and surrounding areas. 
Renowned artist Paddy Bedford (dcsd.) was her uncle – Mona was very close to her uncle Paddy, and depicts the stories of the Ngarrangkarni (Dreamtime) told by Paddy in flowing landscape style.

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.
