My name is Jason Ridgeway, I am a proud Aboriginal artist from the Dunghutti/Thunghutti Nation of Kempsey on the NSW Mid North Coast. I absolutely love and cherish my culture and hope to pass on all that I’ve learnt to the next generation.
I started using art as a coping mechanism to help with my depression - I find it to be healing as it allows me to tell my life story.
I've evolved into a successful artist creating stunning artworks on various mediums for a broad range of customers and corporate clients, through commissioned work and private sales. My creations can be found on apparel, signage, murals, corporate branding and even surfboards – just about anything!
My passion is turning ideas into artworks, creating stories from my personal experiences and also from others. Some of the stories shared through my art have been passed down to me from my grandparents and their brothers and sisters.
