Maureen Hudson Nampijinpa was born on the 13th August 1959 in the bush at Mount Barkley cattle station. Today, the cattle station is called Yuelamu and is aboriginal owned. Maureen Hudson is a Warlpiri woman . She began painting in 1981. Maureen Hudson Nampijinpa’s paintings draw on traditional Warlpiri Dreaming stories, and incorporate her own distinctive sense of colour and innovation of design. Her paintings originate from Warlukulangu – her father and grandfather’s country.
There are many stories in the desert regions depicting the origins of creatures, including this one of a group of female birds who were caught in the great fires of Warlukurlangu country, and scorched by the flames, turning the ensuing species black.
Royalties from this fabric design will be paid directly to the artist via bank transfer in the form of $1 per bandana sold in this print, and $3.50 from each scrunchie sold in this print.
