Maureen Hudson Nampitjinpa

Maureen Hudson Nampitjinpa was born on the 13th August 1959 in the bush at Mount Barkley cattle station.

Maureen moved to Yuendumu where she worked as a teachers assistant.

In 1981 she started painting and now an established Warlpiri artist.

As a result, Maureen’s artworks depict the sacred stories of Yuendumu, which were passed onto her by her community elders.

Maureen primarily paints ‘Fire Dreaming’ but also depicts ‘women’s ceremony’ and ‘Emu Dreaming’.

The artist utilises intricate dot work which is seen by many female, Yuendumu artists.

Her bright use of colour and texture truly make Maureen’s works beautiful representations of her spirituality.
