Background: Dennis is a descendant of the Yorta Yorta language group from the Murray River in Victoria’s Goulburn Valley region. His mother is from the Gippsland area of Victoria and is a gunai Kurnai woman. Dennis has produced Aboriginal artwork for many years and is an accomplished artist in several mediums. He has sold his artworks throughout Australia and overseas and in 2006 won the prestigious SheppARTon Festival’s Koori Art Award. Themes: Dennis loves to walk through his traditional land allowing him to reconnect with his culture and to nature which rejuvenates him.
