My Story

“I’ve always been attracted to colours, mixing and blending them to make my own unique palette”.

Luruk-In is an Australian Aboriginal Art business, founded by proud Taungurung, Wotjobaluk, Wemba Wemba and Boon Wurrung woman Aimee McCartney. Aimee was born and raised on Wurundjeri country in Naarm, Melbourne and currently lives on Gunaikurnai Country (Victoria).

An emerging contemporary Aboriginal artist, Aimee’s vibrant approach to life coupled with her strong ancestral and cultural identity allows her to create unique, intricate and eye-catching artworks on canvas. With a mixture of bright colours and textures, Aimee explores modern society through the looking glass of the world’s oldest living culture. 

Aimee’s strongest inspiration comes from her Country, its waterways and mountains, its sand, soil and shells. Aimee’s hope is to continue the sacred tradition of Storytelling through art and to inspire people to connect and learn about First Nations’ culture, history, stories and language.
