About the artist: Anawari Inpiti Mitchell

Anawari participated in the first tjanpi (grass) weaving workshop at Papulankutja (Blackstone) in 1995.

Anawari currently works for Ngaanyatjarra Land and Culture at Papulankutja. Her grandmothers country is Kuru Ala, a very important site for the Seven Sisters story which she paints. She paints stories of when the sisters travelled and camped at Kulyuru east of Blackstone and Kuru Ala which is a sacred women’s’ ceremonial site where teenage girls are taught to become young women.

Anawari’s family, the women of the family, have custodianship over some very special dreaming places.
