Kathleen grew up at the Hermannsburg community, where she learned the Western Aranda language. Her mother is of the Pitjantjatjara tribe. Now located in Alice Springs, her art is inspired by memories: “My desire is to showcase the beauty of Aboriginal culture using bush tucker and children’s stories that spark the imagination and lift the spirit”. Kathleen also shares treasured memories of life growing up with family on a remote aboriginal community. These family connections have become an important part of Kathleen’s life belonging and identity.
Allegria Designs is pleased to collaborate with Kathleen and to contribute royalties back to her.
