Kaya - Hello. My name is Buffie Corunna and I am djerpin - happy you have joined me on my website. I would love to share a little about myself and my journey. I am a Noongar Yorga - Aboriginal Women of the Noongar Nation, born in Albany, Western Australia. My family connections are from Gnowangerup. A small town in Western Australia.
I love spending time with those that I love and have a strong bond with my family. Much of my work is greatly influenced by family, cultural connections, my spirituality and relationships.
I can express myself whole heartedly through my artwork. I believe art is one of the greatest tools to help with any mental and emotional issues. I have always loved painting, drawing and experimenting in a variety of art mediums. I am especially drawn to the challenge of conveying to others, through art, how I am influenced by my spirituality, my culture and my life experiences. I use art as a platform for storytelling.
We all have a story to tell and art is one of the most creative forms to share our stories.
I deliver painting workshops to encourage cultural expression with an Aboriginal Art and Culture perspective. My workshops are designed to provide an opportunity for all participants to build their confidence through art while still being able to connect to Aboriginal Culture.
I create commissioned pieces, both digital and acrylic paint on canvas. I create artworks by taking inspiration from my client and what I see and feel around me through my spirituality and what connects me to my culture. I especially love using Aboriginal symbols to portray a story and narrative.
Quote I live by: You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels right. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.
