Maizie Gularrbangga (deceased)

Biography

Maizie began working at Bábbarra Women’s Centre as a cleaner. Her growing interest in the work of the sewing team and lino artists meant she began to be mentored by older, more experienced women. She depicted prawns and lobsters from her island home, Milingimbi.

Maizie moved to Manayingkarírra (Maningrida) from Milingimbi for her partner, and frequently returned to her island home in East Arnhem Land to visit family.
