Michael's Biography

Michael Connolly hails from Charleville, located in south west Queensland. He is a descendant of the Kullilla Tribe from the Thargomindah and Eulo region on his Father's side, as well as from the Muruwari People from Goodooga and Brewarrina region of north-west New South Wales on his Mother's side. These ancestral connections have allowed him to establish traditional trade and diplomatic links with Central Desert, South Australian, and Northern New South Wales' Aboriginal Communities. Michael's profound Indigenous heritage, coupled with his unique interpretation of cultural traditions, enables him to offer a distinctive perspective in the visual and performing arts, enriching his work in cross-cultural settings.


Michael is a dedicated and driven professional Aboriginal artist and craftsman, possessing exceptional interpersonal skills. He has collaborated extensively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, business partners, stakeholders, and the wider Australian community.


Starting his career as an individual Aboriginal artist and performer in Brisbane, Queensland, Michael has transitioned to focusing on personal and business growth for Dreamtime Kullilla-Art. Today, he is celebrated as a distinguished Aboriginal artist and craftsman, performer, and facilitator. Michael is committed to enhancing his business operations while simultaneously advocating for and increasing awareness of Aboriginal culture and its people, driven by his profound respect for the diverse histories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Australia.
