About the artist

Tulli Stevens is a proud Aboriginal woman from Mullaway - Gumbaynggirr Country on the Mid North Coast of NSW. Her Bloodline is Boorooberongal clan of the Dharug Nation. Tullis roots are embedded in Gumbaynggirr Country, and she is recognised and embraced by local Elders and community as belonging to Gumbaynggirr land and mob. Growing up on Gumbaynggirr Country, surrounded by both the beach and the bush, has been the main inspirations in her art. Tulli's paintings tell her story, they are a reflection of family, community, and the complex, elemental beauty of patterns in nature. She uses art for meditation, a way to connect and explore within herself. 

While continually learning about her culture, Tulli creates contemporary Aboriginal paintings as a way to share, inspire, and pass on this knowledge. She has an advanced diploma in visual arts and has showcased her work in solo and group exhibitions. 

Tulli teaches art workshops through Mullaway Creative co, alongside Jimmy Wags, up and down the coast, as well as inland, showing both children and adults the importance of using art as a way to relieve stress and anxieties. She is passionate about creating a change and inspiring our younger generations to use art for communication, experimentation and to tell their story.
