Louise Numina was born in 1976 and is an Anmatyerre artist from Ti Tree, 190km North of Alice Springs in Central Australia. She grew up on Stirling Station, a cattle station south of Tennant Creek along with her six sisters and three brothers, where she attended primary school and later moved to Alice Springs to attend Yirara College.

After she completed her school studies Louise moved back to Stirling station and worked with the Community Development Program. Her aunties, very famous artists, Gloria and Kathleen Petyerre taught Louise to paint in 1981 and she sold her art through galleries in Alice Springs and across the Northern Territory up to Darwin, where she eventually moved in 1995.

Louise studied art at Nungalinya College and has a Diploma of Fine Arts from the Northern Territory University. Her art has been exhibited throughout Australia and is popular with art dealers and collectors worldwide.

Louise lives in Darwin with her four sisters, Jacinta, Lanita, Caroline and Sharon Numina, who are also well respected artists.


Dingo Dreaming relates the story of an old Dingo Man who travelled throughout the desert, sometimes as a dingo and sometimes as a human ancestral being, instructing the people living at isolated camps in law, language and ceremony. Once when he travelled from Yuendumu to Arrangi he mated with a female dingo who produced many cubs, and this is now regarded as a sacred site.

Louise has depicted the ceremonial sites showing the dingo paw prints, waterholes and the body paint worn for Dingo Ceremony which is still performed today at this sacred site.
