Melissa Spillman (Woods)

Maarakool Art

I'm Mel, a Noongar Aboriginal Artist in Western Australia. My family heritage is from Gnowangerup, Goreng Country in South West WA. Being raised away from my Aboriginal heritage I am incredibly passionate about sharing my heritage and culture to keep it alive, leading workshops at schools and inspiring the younger generation by telling stories through art. I started my own business, Maarakool Art, in July 2021. I focus on workshops, painting murals, corporate commissions and licenses.
