Alson Buchanan is Back


Junnoy Murriwan (Alison Buchanon) is a Gumbaynggir woman from Nambucca Heads.
Alison was raised by her father in Northern New South Wales. She grew up in a beach-side tin shed, helping her family make a living by digging beach worms to sell to bait shops and once owned 160 pigeons, which she raced.
Her family maintained a strong connection with traditional culture. Alison was chosen to exhibit at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. As a result, she moved to the city where she established her own art gallery.
Alison’s art reflects her love and respect for nature and life.
