Reggie was born in Alice Springs and attended the Alice Springs Convent School where he first started painting. He found his style over these years by watching older artists in the local dry rivers painting their stories. His initial style took on a 'Namatjira' expression as he painted the scenes around Alice Springs.

Over the years Reggie took on different jobs including as a station hand and fencing, but always painted when he had the chance. By 1985 he had begun experimenting with the dot painting style which he used to share his stories about life in his mother's country, Barrow Creek and Neutral Junction Station. He often tells stories through his art of the hunting and gathering of bush tucker and traditional Aboriginal life.

Description

This landscape by Reggie reflects the colour and formation of the many ranges, hills, gorges and flora that are found in his country, Barrow Creek Area, West of Alice Springs in Central Australia. This country truly has the blue and purple colours of the ranges in the distance, the rich colour in the sand and an amazing contrast when the plentiful flora is in bloom.
