Founding Member and Chairperson of Boomalli Artists Cooperative
Euphemia Bostock, affectionately known as ‘Phemie’, is a proud Munanjali-Bundjalung woman and elder. As an artist she has worked across many mediums including textile, printmaking, design and sculpture from the early 1960s.
Euphemia’s decision to take up art was embedded in her desire to help her family when money was scarce. Her work has been exhibited extensively in Australia and internationally.
Her long history of creating images ranges from travelling to Paris in 1987 as a textile and fashion designer, to having her work reproduced by Australia Post in 1999 for the Design Australia Stamp Series.
Notably, her textile prints have been collected by the National Gallery of Australia and exhibited in the New Indigenous Gallery.
Euphemia Bostock was one of ten founding members of Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Cooperative and is currently the Chairperson.
