Crystal Quartermaine - Wiilman Meeukany
My name is Crystal Quartermaine. I am from the Southwest Noongar Clans; Wilman, Ballardong, and Menang. Currently living on Whadjuk Boodja/country, here in Ellenbrook. I visit home regularly with my Mob, to reconnect with lands, spirit, and to learn my culture. I have painted since I was a child. My stories/yarns come from my grandfather (passed), who raised me. I was very close with my grandfather and often would often fall asleep under the stars, listening to the stories about the skies. A lot of my painting incorporate the Meeka/Meeukany (Moon/Moonlight), alongside Astrology. I am currently a full -time Proud mother of four beautiful talented children. Leaving work as a nurse to focus and raise my children, established the time to retake up my hobby of painting.
