Cindy is originally from Utopia but now lives in Alice Springs.  Cindy comes from a family of talented artists, her mother is the well-known artist Gracie Pwerle Morton and her great-aunt is Gloria Petyarre. Cindy has developed her art alongside her mother and family.

Cindy found her own unique style using a myriad of fine, layered dots depicting the Bush Plum Dreaming that is an important Dreaming in her country.  Her paintings have great depth, movement and texture.  The fine dots capture the bush plum in various stages of ripeness and the white lines that lie on top are indicative of the cracked desert earth upon which they grow.
