About the Artist

Belonging to the Yowong-Illam-Baluk and Nattarak Baluk clans of the Taungurung people, Mick Harding is an artist specialising in wood working, sculpture, printmaking and giftwares. For Mick, ‘art is a rainbow of many things’ and his own practice demonstrates this openness to innovative design. His company, Ngarga Warendj – Dancing Wombat, is known for high-quality products that are produced by hand or through ethical licensing agreements. His sculpture commissions have been highly sought by a wide range of clients.

Mick is also a cultural educator and his commitment to knowledge is reflected in the cultural narratives that inform his works. Mick notes the importance of his art making as a way to be both culturally and financially independent. His art is also for his children and community and he says that buying genuine products from Indigenous artists ‘puts money into our pockets and into our communities – we are closing the gap ourselves.’

Ngarga Warendj is a family business, comprising of Mick and Nicole. Their two sons Mitchil and Corey, along with Mitchils' partner Emily, also work for their business.  They have been in business since 2005, with Mick starting as a sole trader, and have grown to become a company in 2020.
