Thelma’s artistic style is more commonly influenced by the designs of her Awelye (women’s ceremony and body paint) for the stories belonging to her father’s country, Ankerrapw.  Thelma has developed a very fine dot style and loves to experiment with beautiful colours.  She has also painted women’s stories of collecting bush foods, which has always been an important role for women. One particular women’s story that belongs to Thelma’s country is Ntyemeny, the ruby saltbush.

The daughter of artist Elsie Dixon Penangke and senior man of AnkerrapwWalter Dixon Pwerle, Thelma has four sisters (three of whom also paint), Elizabeth, Dianne, Maureen and Jilly, and one brother Henry Dixon.
