Eddie primarily paints stories associated with his family and ancestors’ daily life in the Roper River area, including stories associated with animals and hunting scenes, as well as bush tucker and corrobboree themes.

Whether painted in their figurative form or represented symbolically, the depiction of animals in Aboriginal art is highly significant. Beyond their value as a food source, animals serve as cultural images of totemic power which are used to demonstrate connection to country and the ongoing presence of the ancestors/ancestral beings. As with songlines, animal tracks such as Budgerigar, Possum, and Emu are used to map country and delineate custodial responsibilities, laws and ancestry.
