Born to artist Brandy Tjungurrayi and Nowee Nangala, Theresa Nowee comes from a lineage of fine painters.

This is a story of her mother’s country located near Wirrimanu (Balgo). Reflecting the landscape, Theresa depicts Tjurnu, a sacred rockhole surrounded by features of the land including spinifex grasses and desert trees. This country also nurtures readily found bush tucker such as pura (bush tomatoes), kantijilyi (raisins) and delicious blackberries.
