"I am the ﬁfth child of my mother Sally Gabori. My father was Pat Gabori, he was a hunter, a hard working old fella. We use to go bush with our parents who taught us a lot about our homelands both Bentinck Island and Sweers Island.
I love being at the Art Centre with my sisters and the rest of my family. We learn so much from the old people about our land and country. There is always so many activities to get into, I am glad that we have the Art Centre to go to."
