Gracie Ward Napaltjarri


Gracie Ward Napaltjarri was born in 1973 at Papunya.
She is the daughter of the George Ward Tjungurrayi, one of the original masters of the Aboriginal Paintings movement.
Gracie, as a small child moved to Docker River and later to Warakurna in Western Australia.

Gracie's parents taught her the basics, and she started to assist with their works in 2004.
In the beginning she painted in a typical Pintupi dot style, but later in 2008 she captured in her paintings very bold striking colours.

Gracie's creations are now about her grandmothers traditional homelands, the women's ceremonies performed around women's business.
