Laurel Robinson

I was born in Mooroopna Victoria, and I am a proud Yorta Yorta – Wurundjeri woman. I grew up in Shepparton, where I attended school up until, my teen years.

I went to Melbourne and worked as a telephonist, then went to Sydney NSW and work for the Aboriginal medical service for 40 years then returned home to Shepparton.

I joined Kaiela Arts and I then realised my hidden feelings I had in art and the memories of my childhood. I do love working with the other Elders and exchanging stories, I think it’s important we pass our stories onto the younger generations.
