About the Artist

Nellie Coulthard is an Australian artist and works in the aboriginal style. She describes herself as following: “I was born near the Wintinna Homestead close to Oodnadatta. When we were little my family had no house and no car, we were always walking wherever we had to go. There was no school, so I learnt things from the country and from my parents. My mama (father) was a shepherd, and we would stay near the stations where he was working. When we came to Indulkana I was a teacher at the pre-school for a long time, I love working with the tji tji’s (children.) I have been making paintings, and tjanpi baskets and animals at Iwantja Arts for a long time.”
