Five Mile, East Kimberly WA

Mabel Juli was born in the early 1930s at Five Mile, near Springvale Station (south of Warmun). Following the end of the station era in the East Kimberley, Mabel settled in Warmun where she began painting in the 1980s under the encouragement of senior Warmun artists. As Mabel says, “I started painting when the old girl (Queenie McKenzie) was here – she was the one who taught me to paint.

She told me, ‘You try that painting’, and I started to paint. I was doing that Garnkiny [Moon]; that’s the painting I started with – because my mother and father told me that Ngarranggarni [Dreaming] story. I was reminded of all those stories from my mum and dad – like Gelinggenayin Hill and the Old Woman Singing Out for Her Dog. Those stories come from my country. They used to take me out bush when I was a little girl and they told me all about those Dreaming stories. And I always remember those stories. I got ‘em in my brain.”
