Mary Ross Nabarula

Mary Ross Nabarula was born in 1956 at the Aboriginal community of Willowra, approximately 300 kilometres north west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.  Mary was taught how to paint by her father (now deceased) and moved to Alice Springs in late 1999.  Mary’s Dreamings include My Country, Bush Damper Seed, Wallaby and Water Dreaming.  Typically working in a monochromatic palette, Mary uses the repetition of fine dots to depict various flora, food sources and geological aspects of her country.
