  • 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 Belinda

    Daughter of Sammy Petyarre and Margaret Golder, Belinda grew up at Boundary Bore and Gillen Bore in Utopia attending school there until she was a young teenager and made the commute to school in Alice Springs. Now in her 30's, Belinda spends her time creating beautiful works of art and being a mother to her two small children; her two loves. Her works often represent bush medicine or the flowers or leaves of the pencil yam that is sacred to Alhalkere people.

    One of her cherished styles is an adoption of the method made famous by her Great Aunt, Emily Kame Kngwarreye. The technique applies dots with the use of a paintbrush, exploring depth and colour as paints are mixed together wet. Belinda remembers watching Emily paint when she was a young girl and feels a connection and honour to follow her legacy.

    The pencil yam is a small, long tubular yam (swollen root) of a trailing herb or creeper found in Utopia that can cover large areas of ground with bright green leaves. Its yellow flowers blossom after rain, and bring a beautiful colour to the landscape.
