  • About the Artists

    Our vibrant and dynamic artists are from the Utopia region; a large remote area of Central Australia which, until recently, had no government funded art centre. As a result of their pioneering efforts, they have one of the strongest and richest art histories.

    ABOUT

    Each Desert Doll item is printed with artwork by Utopia Lane artists.


    The Artwork

    Spring Soakage by Lena Pwerle

    Spring Soakage  |  120cm x 120cm

    This colourful artwork by Utopia elder Lena Pwerle depicts soakages (waterholes) that are spread across her country in Central Australia.

    Lena says that these soakages are now all dried and used up but had plenty of water in them long ago which provided her people with a much needed water supply. With their intimate knowledge of the land, Lena’s people knew how and where to find them.


     Lindsay Bird Mpetyane artwork for Desert Doll's Charcoal Lindsay range

    Charcoal Lindsay  |  45cm x 45cm

    This small black, white and red ochre artwork by Utopia elder Lindsay Bird depicts the Bush Plum Dreaming.

    Black or charcoal is an important colour associated with the Bush Plum Dreaming. Often it distinguishes the bush plum from other trees or berries in symbols due to its inherent colour.


    Jeannie Mills Pwerle's painting for Desert Doll's Flowering Yam printed homewares

    Flowering Yam  |  180cm x 60cm

    This large panel by Utopia medicine woman Jeannie Mills Pwerle depicts the desert yam, its seeds and its bright magenta flower.


    Gloria Petyarre's painting for Desert Doll's Summer Leaves printed homewares

    Summer Leaves  |  45cm x 45cm

    This small Leaves painting by Gloria Petyarre is vibrant, fresh and seaside-esque making it a perfect addition to Desert Doll's first range.

    Our hearts are heavy as we mourn the loss of Aunty Barbara Weir. Barbara passed away peacefully on 3 Jan 2023 surrounded by family.

    Artist, friend, family, boss woman, leader, mentor, pioneer. Utopia will never be the same. Barbara was one of the strongest women we knew, and we pray her spirit will guard and protect her family and the people of Utopia as she did in life. 

    Sending love to all her loved ones.
