George Tuckerbox, a senior Wangkatjungka artist, grew up in the Great Sandy Desert and moved to the Kimberley cattle region as a youth. After working as a stockman, in the 1990s he began painting his ancestral country along the Canning Stock Route. He shares the knowledge of traditional country with other elders who paint their stories – map their country.
