Tommy was born in 1948 at McDonald Down Station, Utopia, son of Jacob Jones and Dolly Kemarre. Tommy comes from a tradition of family painters, with his brothers Lenny, John and Freddie, and his sister Lily Sandover also being artists.

The main story painted by Tommy, from his father's country, is Caterpillar Dreaming. He describes it as 'black, green and grey. Looks like witchetty grub'.

Description

Tommy paints the story of the caterpillar or grub (tyape) found in his country, Irrultja. The colours of the caterpillar are black, green and grey and looks similar to the witchetty grub.

Concentric circles are the sites of the caterpillar and connecting parallel lines are the caterpillar tracks. The background pattern depicts his country.
