Jason saw his Uncle working at Bathurst, doing carving and screenprinting at Tiwi Design and decided to come and work at Jilamara in the dry season of 2016.
He feels like he has a lot to learn and looks up to people that have been here longer.
Jason wants to learn more culture from the Elders and put more culture into his work. At the moment, he enjoys carving and painting Tiwi wildlife.
He is becoming an accomplished carver at Jilamara, through mentorship from senior Jilamara carvers Patrick Freddy Puruntatameri and Pius Tipungwuti.
