Watercolour on Paperboard | 42cm x 60cm
"Waterhole for thirsty wild animals in central desert Australia."
Besides her traditional art and stories Marie is a contemporary water colour artist of the "Hermannsburg School", these artists draw their inspiration from Albert Namatjira and associated artists who began painting landscapes in watercolour at Hermannsburg in the 1930s.
Since 1996 the subject of her work has been in the ‘dot’ style of her desert people. Her artwork represents body markings, ceremonial business stories and stories for hunting and gathering in their traditional country. Recently she has begun painting watercolour landscapes again.
Marie has been an artist at the Didgeridoo Hut in Humpty Doo for many years and she divides her time between the Top End of the Northern Territory and her Desert community.
