WILD Life (fibre works by Penny Milingu Wanapuyngu and Tony Cameron)

Artist Statement - Tony Cameron

Penny and I work together. We come up with an idea and then go and collect materials. Penny collects pandanus and stringybark to weave and stuff the creatures. My job is to collect materials to make wings, legs, beaks and the stands. I also paint the patterns and markings of the animals using natural pigments. This really brings them to life.

We love making these artworks. It’s something we like doing together.
