About

Freddie Timms was born at Ngarrmaliny and worked as a stockman on various East Kimberley cattle stations for most of his life. He helped paint the boards and danced for the Gurirr Gurirr ceremony devised by Rover Thomas. Subsequently when canvas and paints were supplied to some of the more senior artists, including his father-in-law George Mung Mung, Timms asked for painting materials and he has continued to paint ever since. His style conforms to the East Kimberley archetype originated by Rover Thomas but is recognisably his own with discrete areas of colour outlined in double rows of dots.
