  • 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.

    Bush Medicine by Sandra Teece | Stretched

    30cm x 30cm

    The plants depicted in Sandra's painting are found in the country around Ampilatwatja, north of Utopia in Central Australia, and are used for soothing skin infections by way of an ointment, or mixed with water to make a drink to help with coughs and colds. Bush medicine is widely used here and the knowledge continues to be passed down to younger generations. 

    Painting bush medicine stories is important because it helps to maintain a strong knowledge and culture for the community.

    "There are lots of different medicines, we know what their stories are, we learnt them from our parents and we teach these stories to our children.” - Sandra Teece
