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.

About Tobwabba Art Group

The Tobwabba story centres on the original Worimi people from the Great Lakes of coastal New South Wales.

The name Tobwabba means ‘place of clay’ and refers to a hill on which the Worimi descendants now live.

Unlike desert tribes who have remained fairly isolated, coastal aborigines have absorbed Western culture.

Their art reflects this duality; a traditional background may be overlaid with distinctly modern features.

The Tobwabba Art Group is a business enterprise developed for artists by their Land Council and the Government funded Skillshare Organisation in Forster.

Emotive and highly original art images are applied to the sales and marketing efforts of Australian product manufacturers.

Images are currently licensed to operators in clothing, textiles, accessories, publishing, stationery, paper products, giftware, souvenirs and general merchandise.
