This design shows Maisie’s Tjukurrpa, Tali In My Country. These are the sand hills in her country after the rain. It shows how one moves up and down to cross the country west of Haasts Bluff.
The Artist: Maisie began painting in 2008 while working part time with the Ikuntji Aged Care program at Haasts Bluff. Working from the art centre looking after the elderly artists, Maisie paints whenever she can find the time throughout the day. Already showing a lot of talent, she is the older sister of 2 other emerging Ikuntji artists, Walter and Evelyn Jugadai.
Ikuntji Artists: the first art centre established by women in the Australian Aboriginal Western Desert Art Movement. Already in the 1980s women began painting in Haasts Bluff in the aged care facility. They had been instructed by their husbands and fathers, and they had often assisted them in completing their paintings. By the early 1990s these women artists decided to pursue setting up their own art centre. Ikuntji is an Aboriginal owned, non-profit Aboriginal Corporation.
