Bronwyn was born in Gunditjmara Country, Warrnambool and comes from a long lineage of Traditional Weavers. Bronwyn learned from her grandmother Georgina and mother Zelda Couzens. She has played a vital role in the revival of the Traditional eel trap.

Through her work, Bronwyn acknowledges the importance of maintaining the cultural knowledge behind the weaving and the role this played in times past. Teaching traditional weaving techniques asserts the strength of this cultural practice that was utilised for everyday life.
