About Brandi

My name is Brandi and I am a proud descendant of the Wiradjuri mob and I am also Tongan.

My Story

I've had a passion for art for as long as I can remember. It first started with drawing and slowly progressed into painting. I'm 27 and have been painting for 10 years now.

I initially taught myself how to paint by watching youtube tutorials, however, I was lucky enough to Graduate from Deakin University in 2020 with a Bachelor of Creative Arts. I am currently studying Master of Fine Art at Monash University 📚

I grew up in Victoria, Australia. From 2017-2020 I worked as a Koori Family Violence Support Worker to support Aboriginal women navigating the legal system. The women I met inspired me with their stories and strength and they inspire my art subject matter and style.

Living in Lutruwita

I relocated to Lutruwita (Tasmania) on Palawa Country in Feb 2020 just before COVID hit. I'm currently based near Nipaluna (Hobart).

Brandi Salmon Art came to fruition 2 years ago and it has grown so much! From humble beginnings painting in my lounge room, I've now received millions of views on tiktok, have been featured in articles by the ABC, the National Indigenous Times and my products are stocked in 4 stores.
