She is a Certifi cate 4 in Workplace Training and Assessment trainer as well as an experienced art tutor based in the Central West of NSW who has and continues to facilitate art work shops for disabled adults; people with mental health issues; in drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres, with Indigenous and non-Indigenous children; youth at risk as well as with the Aboriginal offenders at Bathurst Correctional Centre.

She also taught Aboriginal art at Bathurst and Orange TAFE campuses. Nyree’s paintings depicting the Aboriginal children of the Stolen Generations have been described thus: „in these ephemeral and quite beautiful works, the fi gures fl oat surreal across the vivid Australian outback. The works evoke a sense of loss and heartbreak.

Nyree has shown through her work that she is a strong storyteller and is able to more than capably get her message across to the viewer.” The use of red ochre from Mudgee features strongly Nyree’s work and the majority of her paintings contain sand from the Illawarra, which connects her with her birthplace.
