Maisie King Australian, Yankunytjatjara, b. 1932

“I was born in Oodnadatta and I went to school there. When I was a young lady I was working to clean homes for people at the station. Today I’m painting the tjukurpa (traditional stories) of country that I remember, and what my family taught me. These are the paintings about my special country from a long time ago.”
