Handmade Tea Tree clapsticks by Bob Kelly
Bob Kelly is of Wathaurung heritage and has been painting and drawing since he was a child, before he started school. He stopped creating art when he was a teenager after being told "my art would get me nowhere".
It wasn't until Bob became a single Dad in his 40's that he started creating work again. Bob was a founding member of Baluk Arts and works tirelessly for the local Indigenous community on the Mornington Peninsula.
Bob enjoys painting with oils and expressing the spirit of the Mornington Peninsula landscape from an Aboriginal perspective in a traditionally European style, inspired by Albert Namatjira. Bob also enjoys wood carving and pyrography.
