The Bundjalung people, also spelt Bunjalung, Badjalang and Bandjalang, are the original custodians of this region extending as far north as Beaudesert, & south to around Grafton. The Bundjalung people tell us that Rainbow Snake, or Serpent, and the Goanna worked together to create Bundjalung country. Since 2019, he has lived in Naarm (Melbourne, VIC) but grew up on Gubbi Gubbi (Sunshine Coast) country. Nov 2020, Corey commenced being an artist which he considers a hobby. Identifying as a Gay man, he likes to paint with a large variety of colours being influence by the Rainbow Flag. Therefore, his artworks are appeals to every person. He uses acrylic paints and primarily paints on canvases but given his teenage years where he considered becoming a carpenter, he has a real love for timber furniture. Spanning back through his primary, secondary or tertiary years Corey has not been formally trained in the arts. Corey entered the last Koorie Heritage Trust exhibition.
