Yuwin ngadhi (my name is) Jessi Rebel. I am a proud Wiradjuri woman living on Wadawurrung Country. I grew up on the Mid North Coast of NSW on Biripi Country, and moved down to the Surf Coast of Victoria in early 2016. I am a passionate surfer and youth and disability support worker, and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts Therapy, learning about how the arts are a powerful tool for healing and connecting people. The combination of all these things, alongside my culture is what inspires and drives my creative journey, seeking to create artworks that explore the narratives of being to Country, to ourselves and to others.

My artistic journey is strongly inspired by my Aunty, Lisa Evans, an established First Nations artist. I grew up watching her paint and learning from her, and she shares culture and knowledge with me whenever I get the chance to be with her. I create works with flow and energy, and love using lines throughout my artworks to explore the connection between things. I draw inspiration from my love of surfing and being deeply connected to Sea Country through this love, as well as understanding the importance of taking care of it and caring for Country also.

I am currently expanding my artistic repertoire into mural work, and this is something I want to continue to learn and explore. Being apart of the YOOKAPA Program has been so amazing, connecting with more mob and being inspired to create and learn more.
