aboriginal artist: Patricia Jackson

Patricia Jackson Napanangka was born in 1983 in Kintore, NT. She is a young Pintupi woman from a family of artists, granddaughter to famous Papunya Tula artist, Walangkura Jackson Napanangka.

She began her painting career by assisting her grandmother Walangkura with the background dotting on paintings. She commenced painting in her own right in 2009.

As an emerging artist, she paints the traditional stories of her country in a contemporary and vibrant style of bold linear designs, circles and fine dot work. Her paintings are expressive, dynamic images with bright colour combinations. She is an artist to watch for in the future.
