“I started painting back in the prison in Alice Springs, with my dreaming, following my Fathers footsteps with all the stories of my Dad and grandfather and dot painting. I come from the Tanami Desert, Central Australia, my father was a very well known artist – the Nelson family are all painters. I used to watch in 1981 when my father was alive, he did dot painting – I need to keep this culture alive, the stories to tell and the dreaming. I thought I want to be a painter when I was young. On my Mothers side, I know very well too – she paints with lines, she is a very old lady in Yuendumu and I paint my Mothers side dreaming too. I know that story Star Dreaming from my Mothers side. I am the only one from my brothers and sisters now, who knows and can paint these stories – I am going to keep on doing this”.
