Irene Namok
Irene's paintings are inspired by her close connection with local country; they are often emotional responses to the beautiful views and look-outs around Lockhart and her favourite fishing spots. Irene especially enjoys fishing during Salmon season. Irene Namok is the mother of renowned Lockhart River artist Rosella Namok.

Artist Statement: "I was born on Thursday Island and my grandfather was a church minister at the Old Site. I was going to get married but the man I was going to marry died. I have got six kids. Four boys and two girls, but one of my girls died so now I only have one. I like to paint about my culture because it's all I know. The old ones have taught me and show me everything. My paintings are about my emotions. I paint about the bush fires and the water holes. I paint the lagoons because we like to swim in the lagoons. I also paint about meeting times and festival times and meeting places. We dress the kids all up and paint them all and we sit together and we yarn around the fireplace under the moonlight."
