Mary Jane grew up in Umbakumba, on her mother’s country. Mary is a bush dye artist and also enjoys making necklaces from shells found on the beach. When bush dyeing she likes to make strong patterns with bush leaves and cocoshells.

Her favourite moment on a dyeing day is seeing the colours that come out of the dye pot.

She is a mother to two little girls.
