To make your way across to spectacular Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island, Queensland), you have to take a short ferry ride. A brief stroll away from the arrival port in Dunwich, you’ll find Delvene Cockatoo Collins’ bright, beautiful shop.

Delvene Cockatoo Collins is a Quandamooka woman and artist living in Minjerribah. From her little store she sells a range of screen printed homewares, ceramics, stationary, and garments that tell the stories of her family and culture. In her personal art practice, she uses materials and knowledge passed down over generations.

In a holiday place where many people come and go, Delvene’s art practice and store are a grounding presence. We were lucky to spend some time in her special place, to learn more about her work.
