Tilly Coolum - Turtle Dreaming
Artist: Tilly Coolum
Tlly Coolum was born in 1956, and lived most of her childhood in Sydney NSW.
She moved to Cairns in 1976. Tully remembers visiting her grandmother in Woodgate, Queensland, every holidays. Her grandmother would tell her traditional Dreamtime stories of the Kabi Tribe and her grandmother was a traditional elder of the Kabi Tribe.
It is located on the Burrum Coast in Woodgate. She enjoyed passing on her culture to her 3 children and now enjoys sharing it with her grandchildren. She enjoys her art and loves sharing her traditions with the rest of the world. They are a celebration of her Aboriginal
Heritage. I hope you enjoy my art work as much as I have loved painting it.
