Painting - Thelma Dixon

Artist Statement:
“Droving cattle to Queensland from Robinson River in them days they had no truck to drive the cattle then.”

Thelma Dixon first started painting in 2001. She used to spend time sitting down with Clara Roberts at her place that’s when she started thinking about doing her own painting. Thelma then started her art work by doing small paintings about Robinson River and the surrounding areas where she used to go hunting and about her station life where she used to look after the goats for the Station Manager.

Thelma also makes necklaces using bush seeds and shells and does weaving with pandanus leaves. Thelma can also make traditional items with wood by making coolamons and clap sticks and has worked in contemporary mediums including screen printing and ceramics.
