An Anmatyerre elder, keeper of the Alhalkere Women’s Dreaming stories, she was in in her 70’s when she began to paint on canvas.

Highly successful and much sought after she created an astounding body of works in only a few years, and was soon labelled as one of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists.

This survey exhibition presents an overview of distinct stages of her remarkable career as a painter and gives an insight in the deep connection between her work and Emily Kame Kngwarreye’s culture and country.
