Megan Lyons is the daughter of renowned artist, Rini Tiger. She enthusiastically paints The Perentie Man story (Ngintaka) from her country Amata. Like her famous mother, she paints this using thick textured paint and bright colours. There are five song lines related to this story surrounding the theft of a grinding stone by a Perentie (goanna) Man. Megan paints these songlines that branch across her country. Megan is a proud young painter following in the artistic footsteps of her mother.
