Lorna Corbett’s practice moves between depictions of landscape and of the bush foods found around Canteen Creek. A great teacher, Lorna’s practice is influenced by her rich knowledge of Country, and is used as a vessel for sharing cultural knowledge with younger family members. Her works frequently contain closely observed depictions of different bush foods and grasses, distinguishable by carefully depicted variations in colour and shape which Lorna explains with great patience.
Lorna is a senior member of the Owaritilla community and has played an important role in the development of younger artists, being cited as a mentor by many. She was born in Ali Curung and began painting at a young age, listening to the story of her grandmother on her father’s side.
