About the Artist

Maringka Burton is an Australian artist and works in the aboriginal style. She describes herself als following: “I am a senior lady at Iwantja, and I began working as an artist a long time ago. Me and Mrs Singer were the first women artists here. I help look after the art centre and go to the big meetings for them. I also enjoy singing and I travelled to sing in the ceremony for the Sydney Olympic Games. My father was a special Ngangkari (traditional healer) and he taught me about healing; now I am Ngangkari too. I do lots of work for the women’s council, I’m always working and supporting Anangu women. As artists and as a community, we should always do more work with the young people, making things together and teaching them about the old ways, always remembering country, this is a good way.”
