In this film clip we join Mulkun at the Buku-Larrnggay Art Centre in Yirrkala, East Arnhem Land. Here Mulkun works alongside artist Nongirrnga Marawili in the centre’s outdoor painting area as she paints on bark using traditional ochres.

Also an accomplished printmaker, Mulkun signs her prints at the Buku-Larrnggay Art Centre’s Yirrkala Print Space. The print space is co-ordinated by Annie Studd.
