Clinton was taught painting from his father when he was a teenager. As he grew older, Clinton began to understand that the best way to connect to his Country is to paint. And the best way to ‘talk’ about his homeland is through showing his paintings. Clinton often paints his main totem is ‘Birrkuda’ (Sugar Bag Honey Bee). “Birrkuda is me,” Clinton explains. Painting culture earns respect in community, particularly amongst the Elders. Clinton also sings the song lines about the bee, and with his group dances like a bee, embodying the characteristics of the bee. “When it stings we show that through fire,” says Clinton.
