June Smith


My name is June Smith and I live in the community of Bayulu near Fitzroy Crossing in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. My language group is Gooniyandi.

 A long time ago I worked at the GoGo Station School (now Bayulu School) as a Teacher's Aid, teaching sewing to grade one students with some old people. This was my first job. I've worked at the Bayulu Store, and also as a cook for a while for the old people.

 I started working with Cherry Smiler and some other ladies on silk screening at Bayulu in our little house. I came to work for Marninwarntikura women’s resource centre several years ago as part of the art therapy programme where I went back to sewing again! 

 I like working at Marnin Studio because I can relax and ease my mind to do the things that I love, like silk screening and lino cut block printing. I feel happy with all the women around here and getting creative. I would love to see more women coming to be involved, especially the younger girls.
