Yaama, My name is Natasha Kaiser nee Budda-Deen, I am a proud Aboriginal woman from the Gomeroi tribe in NSW. I currently reside in QLD with my husband and 2 young sons.
My inspiration for this business comes from my boys hence the name "Wurrumay", which means "Son" in my Gamilaraay language. I started my business as an art page when I was pregnant with my eldest son on instagram and painted here and there.
I wanted to expand my business to a collective and offer so much more then commissioned artwork. I also wanted products that everyone could afford, but also maintaining the natural vibe while showcasing my artwork. I have sourced all of my products from Australia and more importantly have connected with other Aboriginal businesses and artists to help them grow with me.
I grew up in Grafton NSW and spent a lot of time on my little brother and sisters country in Yamba NSW (Yaegl country) with their families and have developed close ties to so many wonderful Aboriginal people and have learnt so much along the way.
I was also lucky enough to learn to paint, two of my uncle's and aunty shared their craft with me and I feel very grateful to be able to share my culture within my art. I am very grateful to the strong women in my family who have mentored and guided me throughout the years.
A special mention to my late uncle, you have inspired me to do so much with myself, my family and most importantly my art and culture. Thank you for everything you taught me. This is for you unc.
