Serita Ross was born in Alice Springs, NT and grew up in Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community located 290 kms north-west of Alice Springs. She was raised by Tess Ross and Jack Jakamarra Ross who was one of the founding artists of Warlukrulangu Artists.
She attended the school in Yuendumu. She is married with one daughter, Shemaiah.
Serita has been painting for Warlukurlangu Artists, an Aboriginal owned and controlled art centre located in Yuendumu since 2002. She paints the Dreaming stories which include Wardapi (Goanna), Yarla (Bush Potato) and Pamapardu (Flying Ant) passed down to her by her mother and father and their parents before them. These stories relate directly to Serita’s traditional country.
Apart from raising her daughter which takes a lot of her time, Serita also loves to go hunting for traditional bush tucker with her family.
