Valorine is the granddaughter of the late Minnie Pwerle (deceased in 2006) who was one of Australia's top female contemporary Indigenous artists. Valorine said, 'When nanna was alive, I looked after her, - cooking, washing, cleaning, etc. I prepared paints and changed water when she did painting. I took out nanna hunting and camping. We caught witchetty grub, kangaroo, goanna, bush banana, sugarbag…lots of tucker!'

Valorine has beautiful memories of her younger days in Utopia. She started painting when she was about sixteen. She learnt how to paint by observing Minnie and other family members.
