Aboriginal artist Jack Britten was born at Tickelara in the East Kimberley around 1921. He works in natural ochres on canvas, gum resin fixative, as well as limited edition prints. Britten is a senior Gija lawman. As a boy he was taken to work as a stockman and later as a road worker. In 1982 Jack moved back permanently to Frog Hollow, in the East Kimberley, where he had worked to establish the Worranginy Out-Station.
