Son of senior artists Lily Roy and Roy Rewa Jack continues to paint and carve his Malarra clan designs. This includes Jack’s totem the Larratitja (barracuda). 

Jack is one of the few speakers of the critically endangered Yan-nhangu language and features alongside his family in the highly acclaimed documentary film Big Boss: The Last Leader of the Crocodile Islands.

Jack worked at the art centre as the boat captain and overseeing material harvesting for many years. Today Jack works with the Crocodile Island Rangers based in Milingimbi.
