Emily began painting in 2004 with her sister Molly after being encouraged by many family members to experience the pleasure of teaching her stories in a creative way.
Emily is the younger sister of the late Minnie Pwerle, one of Australia’s most renowned artists.
Anthep is an ancestral place that remains the most significant site on Atnwengerrp, Emily's country. Ceremony (awely) and dance are still performed there. It is a place where everyone - men, women and children can meet together and camp. It is also a place where permanent water can be found.
