About Yallaroo

Yallaroo, which means Beautiful Flower, is a descendant of Bardi and Yawuru tribes of northwest Australia.

She spent her youth growing up around Broome and Derby until 1966 when she and her husband began travelling, becoming kangaroo shooters in Queensland.

In 1988 Yallaroo began printing the stories she had been told so that her children could understand their Aboriginal Culture.

All her paintings are made up of a combination of x-ray, cross-section, herring bone and dots methods universal in Aboriginal art, although Yallaroo has developed her own dot pattern system.
