These four lovely ladies are sisters who grew up in the remote outback of Australia in an area we know of as Utopia, North East of Alice Springs. Although Minnie passed away in 2006 the remaining three sisters continue to live in their outstation, known as Atnwengerrp.
These sisters were all born in the bush in the 1920's/1930's and have grown up in the traditional ways of the Aboriginal Dreamtime (Mythology, Initiation, Ceremony and Sacred Sites).
Minnie was the first sister to begin painting after much encouragement from her daughter, Barbara Weir, and she made a strong entrance into the Australian art world with her strong colours and bold designs. It didn't take long before Minnie's original paintings became a sought after piece for any Aboriginal Art collection.
Emily began painting not long after in 2001 and Molly and Geyla together began in 2004. All four sisters paint with bold colours and simple, free flowing designs that capture their stories and ceremony.
