"Design is a tool, making a process, and art the narrative that connects us back to story and experience. Through my work I create, tell stories and interpret in ways that can often transcend words and language, flowing from deep within my bones. Winangaylana ngay mara, my hands remember (their making continues)".

 

Yuwaalaraay woman Lucy Simpson, founder of Gaawaa Miyay (2009), is a process led trans-disciplinary designer / artist / maker who works across a range of mediums including graphics, textiles, object and spatial design (from interiors to public installation). Gaawaa Miyay (river daughter) is her creative studio practice. She has exhibited, created, collaborated and consulted on an array of projects and conceptual works over the past decade which speak of country, memory, time,

experience, and notions of exchange.

 

Some of these projects detailed below.

Gaawaa Miyay is a certified First Nations supplier with Supply Nation, a member of the

National Association of Visual Artists (NAVA), and in 2016 Lucy was recognised as an

Honouree of Australian Design by the Australian Design Centre.
