'My name is Loretta George, I was raised in Ngukurr, Roper River and now live at Beswick Community with my family.
I started doing art work when seeing my mum Angelina George doing her painting of bush flowers and landscapes. Also I watched
my Aunty Nora Bindula (Wamutjan) do carvings from wood of birds and crocodiles.
I also like weaving and was taught by Noreena Ashley and Vera Cameron. I like to weave mats and string bags and also paint bush
