Angeline Bill is a proud Mudburra/ Warumungu artist who lives in Tennant Creek and works for Stronger Families program at Anyinginyi Health.
She started to paint at 18 when she enrolled course of art at Batchelor College and used to work as supervisor at the Women Refuge in Elliott when she used to do painting, batik and tshirt printing before moving to Tennant Creek. In Tennant, she worked for the Language Centre before joining Anyinginyi.
When she came to visit our studio in Barkly Arts, Heather and Gladys were working on the crosses for Easter exhibition 2019 and it gave her the inspiration to do more painting. In her family, many of them are artists such as Narelle Bill, her niece, Sharon Bill, her aunty and even her sister-in-law, Karen Cooper. Her inspiration mostly come from the cousin of her mother (passed away) who was a leading artist in Elliott.
Angeline paints bush tuckers, flowers, animals from the bush (particularly turtles), hunting scene and bush medicine.
“I just love the colourful artwork, the scenery of the painting and even the landscape. I can picture them in my mind and paint them”
About the artists:”They feel trusted and talented to do it” ” some of them do cultural painting, but not me”
When she is not painting, she enjoys reading, gardening and going to church.
