Taliyah’s great Grandmother Millie Taylor (nee Lennon – Deceased) and mother are the inspiration behind all of the amazing paintings and stories that Taliyah creates. Taliyah’s great grandmother is half Antikirunya and half Arrernte.
Taliyah says “mum show’s me how to design a canvas painting then I choose a story and dot paint it using my own style of dot painting (circle effect) then I get mum to help me choose my colour palette so my painting’s are eye catching and beautiful”.
Taliyah’s mother show’s her how to create a painting using different designs, styles, techniques and how to blend colours to create her own painting’s that signifies her family and great grandmothers journey across country hunting and gathering traditional foods to survive off the land.
Taliyah’s style of dot art work is shaped into circles and fully dot painted all over the canvas in multiple colour’s to give her painting’s an eye catching effect that makes her artworks beautiful.
Taliyah enjoys painting with her mother and sisters at home and she want’s to keep learning and growing into a successful artist, carrying on her family cultural tradition and continue producing beautiful pieces for many years to come.
