Daisybell Kulyuru: Minyma Kutjara (near Ernabella)
Minyma Kutjara (near Ernabella) (130-23) by Daisybell Kulyuru of South Australian Iwiri Aboriginal Corporation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Daisybell Tjalumi Kulyuru was born in Ernabella in 1971. She started painting at Ernabella Arts with her mother who is now deceased, the artist Angkuna Kulyuru.
Daisybell has worked at Ernabella School as an Aboriginal Education Worker and now lives with her two children and travels between Adelaide and Ernabella.
Daisybell paints stories based on bush tucker, and traditional imagery - referred to as Walka. Walka is any meaningful mark or pattern and may be an image on a cave wall, on rock or in sand and that has cultural and ritual significance. It is used on the body as a painted design during ceremony.
While she's in Adelaide, Daisybell paints at Iwiri, continuing to develop and refine her own style.
