Googi – Maleisha Leo


1 in stock


This print is of flying fox hanging on a moango tree. When mangoes are ready Maleisha and her children walk along the beach side of Cardwell. To pick up mangoes that have fallen and have gotten bruised and throw them to hit and knock off other mangos that were good.

Maleisha would say look at all the mangos on the ground half eaten by all the googi that come through during the night. Her children Akirrra and Andrew would reply they wasted alot hey mum, they should’ve left us some.

The Artist

Maleisha Leo

Maleisha Leo is a Girramay woman, based in Cardwell, North Queensland. Maleisha breathes life into old traditions with her contemporary designs. A versatile artist, her portfolio consists of paintings, printed works, woven Mindi baskets, ceramic Bigin bowls, and jewellery.
Using bold, eye-catching colours - Maleisha experiments with a variety of non-traditional items such as wire, plastics, ropes, and cord to create her Mindi. In perhaps one of her most popular jewellery collections to date, the now sold-out Maleisha Leo Collection has cemented her status as one of North Queensland’s top emerging artists.
