About the artist

Lucy Simpson

The Rediscovering Indigenous Languages website designs have been created by contemporary designer / artist Lucy Simpson, a Yuwaalaraay woman (northwest NSW), based in Sydney.

The Library engaged Lucy to create a contemporary response to the historical collections in a visual format. The results are three digital artworks Gurayn, Message Sticks, and Spoken Lines.

Lucy Simpson is the founder of design company Gaawaa Miyay

Through her contemporary work in textile and graphic design Lucy uses visual narratives and story to connect, share and celebrate. The name Gaawaa Miyay* (gaa-wah me-yay) literally translates to 'river daughter' in Yuwaalaraay / Gamilaraay languages.
