I started painting in 2003, after a dream, so I have been practising for more than 20 years. My culture and love of storytelling have always and will always be one of my greatest inspirations. My paintings are full of colour, movement, shape and contrasts, and are adaptations and interpretations of peoples, stories and journeys.
I have had many successful solo exhibitions over the years. My solo exhibition at Caloundra Regional Art Gallery in 2015, was the most attended exhibition they have ever hosted, with more than 2000 visits in a month.
Most of the painting I do now are commission pieces, and pieces for Reconciliation Action plans, in which I tell the story of the commissionee, or organisation.
From the years 2008 - 2014, Yindi Artz ran hundreds of Aboriginal art workshops in Queensland, with schools, early childhood centres, community events and corporate organisations. Although not regular at present, at times I still run occasional art workshops for adults and children. Please contact me if you are interested in attending any of these workshops.
What De’s Exhibition attendees say
I can also organise a workshop for you if you have enough attendees; this requires a minimum number of 10 people.
As a practising artist, you learn what works best for you material wise, for the longevity of your work, and to deliver a professional product to your client. I use only artist quality materials, Atelier Interactive and Liquitex Structure paints, and top of the line deep edge canvases. Belgian linen canvas can also be used on request.
When painted on unstretched, the final piece is varnished, left for a week to cure, then rolled and freighted to you to take to your favourite framing shop to get stretched and/or framed.

What De’s galleries say
"In November 2022, I had the pleasure of working with De Greer-Yindimincarlie when she exhibited at the Port Adelaide Visitor Information Centre. De Greer-Yindimincarlie’s talents are multifaceted, she is an Aboriginal visual artist, graphic artist, film maker, music producer, musician, and entrepreneur. Her art displayed a range of styles, from intricate details to thought-provoking pieces, telling unique stories.
It was great to showcase her products alongside her art, like the playing & inspiration cards, recycled mats, jewellery, prints and more. The unexpected items, the custom-painted cardboard enviro coffin, the painted bike, and the gorgeous satin formal dress, surprised and delighted visitors throughout the exhibition.
Working with De was easy and enjoyable. She brought great energy and enthusiasm to the collaboration, showing flexibility throughout the process. I look forward to seeing more from De in the future and to future collaborations."
