How Artworks Are Sent
Ochre / Kimberley artworks are shipped on canvas or linen, already stretched, ready to hang unless stated otherwise.
Acrylic artworks are shipped on canvas or linen un-stretched, rolled up in a cardboard tube unless stated otherwise.
These artworks will need to be stretched on a stretcher board before hanging.
This can be done by nearly any picture framer (highly recommended) or you can DIY if you’re confident in your handiwork.
There are numerous "how to" videos on YouTube showing you how to achieve this.
Polly Ngale was born c. 1935 into the Anmatyarre tribe. She was married to Ray Yeramba (deceased) and is the elder sister of well known artists Kathleen Ngale and Angeline Pwerle Ngale.
Polly was part of the original group of women who taught batik at Utopia in the 1970s before venturing into painting with acrylic paints on canvas. Polly often assisted the late Emily Kngwarreye with whom she shared the same country. Together with her sisters, Polly is a senior custodian of the Bush Plum Dreaming.
Polly depicts the Bush Plum and its effects on her country. She often depicts the topography in shades of reds, oranges and yellows reflecting the varying seasonal palette.
Like her sister Kathleen she builds up layer upon layer of colour creating a multi-dimensional effect to reveal the Bush Plum Ankwety – and her country – Alparra in all its glory.
Polly now lives at Camel Camp on Utopia with her family and sisters, Kathleen, Maisy and Angeline Pwerle.
Her work is included in the prestigious Holmes a Court Collection.

This artwork depicts the Bush Plum (or Conkerberry). Polly is the senior custodian of the Bush Plum Dreaming. The varying composition in colour and pattern reveals the geography of the Bush plum, as well as the artist’s intimate knowledge of significant places, such as clay-pans, soakages and spinifex mounds. Bush Plum is a food source for the Aboriginal people from Utopia in the Eastern desert of Central Australia. The women pay homage through body paint, songlines and dance cycles in their ceremonies. (Characteristics of Polly Ngale’s works are the unique over-dotting using layer upon layer of subtle colours such as cream, pink, blue, green, yellow, purple, orange and white).
