Kathleen began to learn batik in the early 1970’s and her artistic mediums developed from there. Kathleen’s paintings represent her dreaming and her country in various forms; lizard tracks, sand hills, bush seeds, watercourses and rock holes, sandstorms & hailstorms. Her latest acclaimed works are painted by finely grouping and layering tiny dots, applied with the point of a fine stick.
Kathleen has travelled overseas extensively with her art and is the winner of several major art awards and is hung in major galleries around the world. Kathleen is the niece of Emily Kngwarreye and one of seven artistic sisters, including Gloria Petyarre, Nancy Petyarre, Jean Petyarre, Myrtle Petyarre, Violet Petyarre and Ada Bird.
