Judith Henry is a Jirrbal Traditional Owner of the Davidson Creek area. She is based in Tully, Queensland. 


Judith is a renowned ceramicist and maker of traditional objects such as Bagu, Jiman, Boomerangs and weavings. Her life-sized Bagu sculptures have become some of the Art Centre’s most iconic pieces. Judith’s common use of warm browns alongside black and white shades is present throughout her portfolio, making her work instantly recognisable.


Judith is a language speaker and holder of important cultural knowledge. This was proudly passed on to her by her Mother, Ida Henry. Since producing traditional objects for many years, Judith’s work has been acquired by countless collectors over that time.
