Born in 1938, Kathleen Petyarre, an Anmatyerre speaker from Atnangkere, began painting in 1988 when she took part in a CAAMA Summer Project; prior to this she worked in Batik.  Kathleen explores the Australian landscape using a layering of fine dot like forms that create optical intensity.  Her work is currently increasingly sort after and is in demand in the secondary market.
