Josepha was born and grew up at Santa Teresa Mission, approximately 80kms South East of Alice Springs. Although having grown up with the presence of a western culture, Josepha still lived a mostly traditional life, collecting bush foods and participating in customary ceremonies.

In 1990, Josepha first tried her hand at painting acrylic on canvas. She has since continued this art, painting for various galleries around Australia. In June 2008, she painted her first paintings for Mbantua Gallery and we are thrilled to now have her on board.

Josepha paints the Bush Plum Dreaming from her father's country. The bush plum grows throughout Central Australia. The fruit isn't large but looks like a grape and is sweet to eat. Josepha represents the bush plum in her paintings through intricate dot work commonly found in reds, blues and oranges. These colours signify the various ripening stages of the bush plum. Josepha is well travelled; her art has taken her to Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.

Josepha now shares her time living between Alice Springs and Harts Range. She rarely visits Utopia anymore although some of her children continue to live out there.
