Maree • Simon
Biripi • Nation
Born in Gilgandra in Western New South Wales (NSW), Maree now resides in Newcastle. Maree is an accomplished artist with more than 20 years experience. Although covering a broad spectrum of colour, iconography and traditional symbols, much of her art depicts stories from her father’s Biripi country, located on the Mid North Coast of NSW. Her art is rich in traditional Biripi saltwater spirits, foods and medicines.
Maree’s work has been much sought after both locally and internationally. Her commissioned work has found its way to America, Finland and Italy. The demand for her paintings has placed Maree at the leading edge of the Aboriginal contemporary art movement.
