ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Inawinytji is the daughter of renowned artist and one of the founding members of Ernabella Arts, Tjariya Nungalka Stanley. She is the younger sister of Renita Stanley and they come from a family that is strong in law and culture. Inawinytji first started working at the art centre alongside her mother in the 1990's, and was involved in several group exhibitions. She then left the community to live in Alice Springs, and after a long absence returned to Ernabella in 2008 and immediately became a very active participant in the art centre and the newly revived ceramics studio.
As well as working on her own artistic development, Inawinytji has also mentored and encouraged her young niece, Janice Stanley, who is now a prominent Ernabella artist.

ABOUT THE ART CENTRE:
Established in 1948, Ernabella Arts is Australia’s oldest, continuously running Indigenous Art Centre. Ernabella Arts is in Pukatja Community, at the eastern end of the Musgrave Ranges in the far north west of South Australia. Pukatja was the first permanent settlement on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY Lands).
In recent years, long after commencing working as artists, senior women decided to leave behind the walka (design) of the early days and to depict their Tjukurpa (sacred stories of country and law). Today the centre is a varied group of artists, and a mix of young and old, men and women, working in several different mediums. The members of Ernabella Arts are always reinvigorating their centre, seeing it through its evolution from the first incarnation as a craft room, into a culturally strong contemporary art centre.
Ernabella Arts is an Aboriginal owned and run corporation which promotes and supports ethical practice in the creation and sale of Indigenous art.
