Artist Bio

Kirli Saunders

Kirli Saunders is many things—a proud Gunai woman, a teacher, an artist and the 2020 NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year. She’s also the award-winning writer of novels, poetry and plays, and her latest book Bindi, written in both Gundungurra and English verse, is a remarkable tribute to family, friends, Country and creativity.
