My tribal name is Winjella Dada which means “roaming story” and my given name is Brian Fisher. I was on the aboriginal settlement of Cherbourg in Queensland and lived with Wakka Wakka tribe. but I belong through my ancestry to the Kullalie Tribe.
Painting has always been my life. I was taught at a very young age by my tribal elders, my uncles, who were also taught at a very young age.
I received an art grant from the Australian Art Bond at the age of 17. At that time I had a number of exhibitions by myself and with my father, Jim Edwards.
I received a Queensland artist of the year 1988 NIDOC Award, working as a cultural officer at the time.
Painting the Dreamtime Stories is my Passion!!!
