  • 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.

    Dulcie's Homeland


    Q+A

    Dulcie was born on 6 June 1986.

    Dulcie most often paints the leaves and flowers of a pencil yam called Atnwelarr; a native trailing herb that covers large areas of the ground after significant rain and brings the bush to life with its bright yellow flowers.

    Yes. Emily was Dulcie's great aunt. Her maternal grandfather shared the same mother and father as Emily.

    Dulcie usually uses a size 6 round taklon paint brush and works with acrylic paints.

    She dips the brush into one or two different colours before applying it onto the canvas in singular lines of brief strokes, usually from an edge towards the centre of the painting.

    Sometimes, especially when the canvas is large, Dulcie will paint a small dot in the centre so she knows which point to align her brush strokes toward.
