Hi my name is Carmel Haines and I am an artist at the Bana Yirriji Art and Cultural Centre Wujal Wujal. My clan group is Nyungkal.
My Grandmother’s country is Shiptons Flat area and my Grandfathers country is Helenvale, Mungumby and Kingsplain.
I grew up in Wujal Wujal and did my entire primary schooling here, then went to Boarding School in Townsville.
I have always like artwork at school and have continued prdactising since then. I enjoy working at the Art Centre and creating things.
