Sonia Kurarra’s paintings reflect her love for her river country in Nookanbah and fishing for barramundi on the river. Sonia has a unique style and story that reflects the depths of the river story she paints.

‘Martuwarra is my river country; this painting is all about the Fitzroy River which flows down through Nookanbah. All kinds of fish live in the water, we catch big mob of fish there. I like parlka (barrumundi). We catch catfish and brim there too. Nganku (shark), wirritunany (swordfish) and stingray also live there. These fish live in these waters long after the flood has gone.’
