Glenn Jonas was born in Allworth 65 years ago. Allworth sits on the Karuah river where the fresh water meets the salt water. As a proud Worimi man, Glenn says ” that’s our country, that’s our home. I have always had an attachment to the land and the rivers. As an Aboriginal Ranger, working on my country is a dream come true for me. County inspires me. Glenn works with TIDE (Taree Indigenous Development and Employment service)
Glenn is also an accomplished artist and has held exhibitions of his stunning indigenous artworks.
His important and poignant work “The Min Min Lights”, with delicate brush strokes achieved by using a single horse hair, is hanging in the former Gloucester Council Chambers. This was bought as a gift to the community in 2009, donated by former Mayor Julie Lyford OAM.
