"My art practice started late as I was working in Travel driving tours when I hurt my back and was unable to work as a driver anymore. During my rehab I decided to take some art classes at the local TAFE which then, in turn, finally led to me doing my arts degree at Curtin University.
I then secured a job in Kimberley TAFE and was teaching art in the surrounding communities, orgainizing exhibitions and art centres and curating the Kimberley Art Prize. In 2009 the Govt cut funding for the Arts and I was out of a job. I then was able to continue my skills as a teacher at the nearby Detention Centre for Asylum Seekers. This changed my life! I was teaching Art and Sewing to 1800 asylum seekers, all men from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Sri Lanka." – Beverly Hornibrook
