Arone Meeks is a Kuku Midigi man who grew up in Far North Queensland. He is a founding member of the Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative:

I believe that art is a language for interpreting who you are and I can't find any other satisfaction than painting. I have a natural need to interpret what I feel and see.

Meeks is wary of using the designs of others so instead explores the bush and his dreams to create his own language of symbols.
