Jeffrey T is a Barkindji artist who has been a part of The Torch program for four years.
After his release last year, Jeffrey has been highly active in the community with his art practice and with The Torch directly – working casually in the office and assisting in painting murals.
His bright and colourful paintings of animals signify important moments through his life and his connection to Country.
