History of artist:
Billy Thomas was born c. 1920 near Bililuna, WA.
He first saw Gadia (white people) as a young boy when he was cooking goanna, and a stockman rode up to him on a horse and offered him an apple.
As a young man Billy worked as a stockman, droving cattle along
the Canning Stock Route. During WWII, Billy moved to Derby to work as a Police Tracker.

One incident saw him shot in the leg at Roogoony (Crocodile Creek), near Turkey Creek, and he has walked with a limp ever since. Billy eventually left the Police service to resume his stock work, and remained a drover for many years before retiring to Mud Springs Aboriginal Community near Kununurra. Billy only began painting officially in 1995, for Waringarri Arts.
