ABOUT ARTIST

Lynette Corby Nungurrayi was born in 1958 at Haasts Bluff in the Northern Territory, then moved to Mt.Liebig in the 1980s. She began painting for the Papunya Tula Artists movement around 1990 and works perfectly with several

artistic mediums such as painting in acrylics, screen-printing onto garments, silk printing, basket weaving and stretching.  

The multi dimensionality of Lynette’s work shows through in her usually bold and vibrant executions. The colour she uses is dramatic yet balanced. When painting on linen or canvas, Lynette creates a blend of colour that adds depth and dimension to her work, creating an almost 3-D effect.

Her works have become very popular and have been widely exhibited in numerous corporate and private collections, both in Australia and abroad including the 2003 Telstra Awards after in 1997 she entered the Northern Territory Fashion Award with a self-designed screen-printed garment.
