Natasha Parriman Lloyd
by Natasha Parriman Lloyd
(Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia)
Painting at Mindil Beach Markets
Traditionally Natasha’s family carved and painted using traditional ochre’s and raw materials from the land. Ceremonial pieces, hunting tools and artefacts such as boomerang, clapping sticks, sea shells and boab nuts were traditionally decorated with raw materials such as feathers, flowers and leaves etc. However traditional designs of line, dot dot, scenic, bird’s eye view, x-ray, symbols and animal tracks would be used amongst the artefacts.
Today Natasha shares her bush tucker and culture stories in a unique style where she has combined centuries of her ancestor’s indigenous art designs of the Nyul Nyul, Yawuru, Jabirr Jabirr and Yamatji tribes (W.A) in a western style medium of acrylic paints on canvas.
