Glenda McCulloch is a proud descendant of Kalkadoon tribe in North West Queensland Mount Isa, and the founder of Cungelella Art. She paints contemporary indigenous art, telling the Story of her beautiful homelands Kalkatungu Country and sharing the colours, textures, and history of her home.
Cungelella Art was founded in 2019 by Glenda McCulloch as a vehicle for sharing her culture through modern Aboriginal art. It soon expanded as a collaboration to include Glenda’s sisters - Jaunita, Dale and Cheryl. Not only was the opportunity for business expansion presented as the demand for their art increased - the sisters were able to create a venture that allowed them to work closely together and spend quality time together as a family creating a legacy through their artwork.
From a young age, the sisters were surrounded by artists and creatives; from their grandparents to their uncles and aunties who enjoyed teaching them about carvings and paintings on different artifacts and traditional art of the region. They’ve taken this traditional knowledge to create a uniquely modern take on contemporary aboriginal art that reflects the rugged ranges and native fauna and flora that surrounds their Kalkadoon home. They take inspiration from the ancient rock faces, red dirt and spinifex-covered hills of the country and colours of the sky painted a peachy orange at sunset and beautiful old rustic gum trees that flourish in this harsh country are reflected through their works.
