Jacinta Lorenzo | Artist Profile

Details of Jacinta Lorenzo


Jacinta was born in Darwin but has lived in Milikapiti for many years. She worked in the old store in the village for many years and now works in the canteen in the new store. In her spare time she enjoys painting on her verandah at home. The patterns she uses come from personal ideas based on her own Jilamara. Her work has been described by other Tiwi people as “old tiwi patterns” reflecting the style that she uses. Jacinta says that culture is very important especially to pass on to the children. She used to dance at ceremonies but is restricted in what she can do today.
