Further information

“I am painting a really important place located between Amata and Nyapari communities on the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in South Australia – the Piltarti tjukurpa and rock hole.

My grandmother was pregnant with my mother at the top of the hill overlooking this rock hole.

My mother, Nganyinytja, was an important leader who started the NPY Women’s Council. I have my own commitment to leadership now, having helped senior women start the APY Gallery and Studio for Aṉangu in Adelaide last year; this is where I paint every day I can. I celebrate my culture and work beside other women who have moved to Adelaide. It’s a piece of the APY Lands in the city.”
