Artist Profile

Nancy was born in the bush at Buffalo Hole, Ngarrgooroon (Texas Downs) and grew up and worked on Texas Downs Station, along with many of her family members. The Kitja people who were born and/or worked on Texas Downs are among the most noteworthy of the Ochre Artists, including Queenie McKenzie (dcsd.), Hector Jandany (dcsd.), Nancy’s brother Churchill Cann, Katie Cox, Betty Carrington and Patrick Mung Mung. Nancy’s son Mark Nodea and her niece (Churchill’s daughter) Charlene Carrington are two of the most talented ochre artists the Kimberley region has produced.

Nancy began painting in 1994 with Madigan Thomas, Mabel Juli and the other female artists who were encouraged by Rover Thomas and Jack Britten. Nancy paints her country Texas Downs of which she has intimate knowledge, and invariably the landscape artwork is accompanied by a significant Traditional Dreamtime story.  Nancy attended bush school and also classes whilst at the leprosarium near Derby, and is able to include in her painting content historical themes concerning the early white settlers and her memories of the station life, as well as those stories passed on to her by her older family members.

Nancy and her brother Churchill are involved in negotiations for traditional custodianship of parts of their country, in particular Nancy’s birthplace, Buffalo Hole.  They take their children and grandchildren to Texas regularly to ensure the close association with this land will continue to inspire and encourage their family for generations.

Artwork Description

The artist has painted her Traditional Country, Texas Downs Station, in the East Kimberley. Many of her family members were born here and worked as stockmen and domestics in the homestead. Their ties with both their country and the station life are extremely strong. Nancy painted with renowned artist Queenie McKenzie (dcd 1998) who was also from Texas, and along with four other Kitja women they were the original female ochre artists of the area. The part of Texas Downs featured is a stock camp at the south-east part of the Ngarrgarroon Hills on the station. The hills are depicted north with the campsite to the south. Dinner Creek Camp was one of the many stock camps on the station where the cattle were held after mustering waiting for the drovers to take them to the Meatworks at Wyndham port to the north. Queenie painted this area, and Nancy has executed this design as a tribute to her friend.
