Sheri Skele (Bigi Nagala)

Aboriginal Bidjara woman

I'm a proud Bidjara woman and a contemporary Aboriginal artist sharing my culture, experiences and hopes for healing our history through my knowledge and storyworks. I began painting as a way to connect with my culture and quickly realised that it was also an incredibly meditative and spiritual experience for me.

I call my artworks bigi nagala, which means 'I am dreaming' in Bidjara. I feel a deep connection to my Aboriginal heritage, the earth, country and spirit, and feel
privileged to be able to share my stories and culture with you through my artwork. I hope to make my mob proud of the artworks that I create and knowledge that I share.
