Brisbane, Queensland | Facebook: Laurie Anno | Aboriginal and Thursday Island artist
Laurie is proud of his culture. His ancestry hails from the proud Kalkadoon warrior tribe in North Queensland and from Thursday Island in the Torres Strait. He is passionate about showing respect to all past, present and emerging Elders within the communities where he has lived.
Following a major injury to his right arm after playing Rugby League in 2014, Laurie turned to Indigenous art as part of his rehabilitation. He has fallen in love with sharing stories from his culture using a paintbrush.
