Artwork by Wendy
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 Gamilaaray language is called Ninghdoo / Nungadhun (pronounced locally as Ningy-doo). The Mount Kaputah area is included in Mount Kaputah National Park.
