Tana Kickett

Tana Kickett Art

My name is Tana Kickett. I am a proud Ballardong Whadjuk Noongar woman from the South West of WA. While I have a strong connection to my home country in the South West of WA, I have lived in the Pilbara for 24 years. I acknowledge the Ngarluma people as the traditional owners of the land I live and work on. While I’ve always loved drawing/painting/writing and creating, more recently I have been drawn to connect to my culture through Art. My style is contemporary Art, I respect other artists and other tribes from around Australia. My paintings include symbols, patterns and messages that that tell a stories. Creating artwork, gives me the opportunity to learn more about my culture - the language, the stories, the people and the connections to the land. I am a busy wife, Mum of three and I am half way through and Electrical Instrumentation Apprenticeship. Any spare time I have, I spend painting. I love being able to share my culture and learn about others through the connections creating artwork can bring.
