Amanda Jane Gabori is Sally Gabori’s daughter.
“I was born in the township of Gununa on Mornington Island at the old hospital which is now the Council Office. I am one of 10 children. I went to school here on Mornington island and then went to Atherton State School to complete years 11 & 12. I have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. I started painting when I was just sittng at home and wanted to go up and join my mum painting as she was really enjoying it. I paint my Country on Bentinck Island and Dibirdibi which is my language name given to me by my father. Dibirdibi is the small river rock cod. I like to paint the scales that cover his body.”
