Anita Nakamarra Gibson was born in 1964 in Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community 290 km north-west of Alice Springs in the NT of Australia. She is the daughter of Nancy Napanangka Gibson, an artist who also paints for Warlukurlangu Artists. Anita has one sister and three brothers. She attended the local school in Yuendumu but later moved to Nyirripi, an Aboriginal community 160 km north-west of Yuendumu, with her mother. She has two children, a son and daughter, from a previous relationship. Anita has been painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in Yuendumu, since 2009. She paints her Jukurrpa stories, Dreamings from her father’s side, in particular Dreamings which relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. Anita uses an unrestricted palette to develop a modern interpretation of her traditional culture, building on traditions that stretch back at least fifty millennia. Anita loves painting but when she’s not painting she likes to go hunting for goanna or playing softball.
