Fabrianne Nampitjinpa Peterson
Fabrianne Nampitjinpa Peterson was born in 1965 in Papunya, located 240 km North West of Alice Springs.
Coming from an artistic family, Fabrianne originally lived at Mt Liebig then moved to Walungurru where she painted alongside her mother-in-law, the well respected and world renowned indigenous artist, Nabula Scobie Naparulla. Her early works were very indicative of Nabula’s own style.
Fabrianne developed her own style of “dot painting” to depict her signature artwork, Wangunu (Bush Damper). These works are Fabrianne’s interpenetration of the tiny black seeds of the Wangunu bush as they are collected in the coolamons by the women. Bush Damper Seed works are painstakingly created by Fabrianne to create an amazing three dimensional effect on the canvas. Her paintings are held in major collections world-wide and have been exhibited quite extensively.
