Kelly-Anne Nungarrayi Gibson



 Kelly-Anne Nungarrayi Gibson Gibson was born in 1986 in Alice Springs Hospital, the closest hospital to Nyirripi, a remote Aboriginal community 450 km from Alice Springs in the NT of Australia. Kelly-Anne attended the local school before attending Yirara, an Aboriginal boarding School in Alice Springs, where she graduated after Year 10. 

Kathleen has been painting for Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation; an Aboriginal owned and governed Art Centre, since 2009. She uses bright acrylic colours to  paint her Father’s Jukurrpa, Dreamings which have been passed down through the generations for millennia. Kelly-Anne uses an unrestricted palette to develop a modern interpretation of her traditional culture. 

When she is not painting she likes to go hunting.
