    Margaret Renee Kerinauia is a Nguiu Bathurst Island artist whose works depict ceremonial body paint designs. Artist Statement "I learnt how to paint from the old people, they used to teach us at school. My grandfather, Jerry Kerinauia was an artist, we have the book at home. That's why I decided to become an artist, to carry on the family tradition. My mother's uncle is an artist too His name is Yiwala. He is half Tiwi, half Kunwingku - like me."
