Kenny Reid carves and paints black and white Cockatoos, Jabirus, Brolgas, Crocodiles, Turtles, Pelicans, Egrets and Canoes. His paintings are of the Larrakia 'Saltwater Dreaming', and feature saltwater crocodiles, stingrays, barramundi and jelly fish.

Kenny is a Larrakia man, born in Darwin, who collects his own wood for carving from his traditional Country, and his carvings are painted using traditional Larrakia designs.


Kenny’s art and designs were used at the railway terminal in Darwin, East Arm. Iron casts of Kenny’s carvings are on site at the Tiger Brennan Drive overpass. He carved the first dugout canoe made in 60 years for the Larrakia Nation Museum Project in 2003, and his dugout canoes are on display at the Coomalie Cultural Centre in Batchelor.
