Inserts

Kathleen Buzzacott was born in Alice Springs where she has lived to raise her two boys with her husband, though in her early childhood, Kathleen moved to Queensland with her father, brother and sister. At the age of 10 Kathy and her siblings moved back to Central Australia to live with their mother in Hermannsberg.

Her Language is of the group Western Aranda and her Tribal group derives from Pitjantatjara. Her mother’s country spans across the borders of South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

She is a hairdresser by trade, but also focuses on and is developing her skills as an artist. Kathleen began painting 16 years ago along with her sister Julie-Anne Paige who is a prominent artist in her own right. Kathleen paints bush tucker and children’s stories which reflect her own happy childhood growing up with her family out in the bush. Kathleen’s work is keenly sought after by the locals in her community, interstate and overseas.
