Wendy Pawley is from the Kamilaroi - Gomeroi, Gamilaraay people of Narrabri Northwest NSW. The meaning of Narrabri / Nurraburai is "Place of Forked Waters". Wendy's mother (the late) Mrs Noeleen Saunders (nee Trindall) was a widely known respected Traditional Owner of Narrabri and surrounding areas.
Wendy paints her "Mother's Country" predominantly the ancient spectacular rugged mountains of The Nandewar Ranges Ninghdoo, Kaputah, Yulludunida and Yulludanda that rise majestically above the Namoi Valley.
The range is the remnants of an eroded basaltic shield volcano that formed about 18 million years ago, the volcanic plug in Gamilaraay language is called Ninghdoo / Nungadhun (pronounced locally as Ningy-doo).
