Born in Nhulunbuy, Megan moved to Galiwinku in 1988 to live with her Aunty, Judy Gurruwiwi Manany. Megan was taught painting and carving from her aunty who also passed on important cultural stories. In particular, this included how to make Yidaki (didgeridoo), weave baskets and carve sculptures.
A very exciting emerging artist from Elcho Island Arts, Megan is involved in the cultural tradition of learning how to paint her mother’s totems. She aspires to be able to create Gumatj clan paintings and also learn her Grandmother’s stories, which she can then pass on down to her own family in future years.
Megan has a very busy life balancing her full-time role as Manager at Elcho Island Arts with her family commitments as and finding time to concentrate on her professional artistic career. She is represented by Alcaston Gallery, Melbourne.
