Janice Stanley: Nyalpi Punu Ilkuwara (Leaf of Ilkuwara Tree)
Nyalpi Punu Ilkuwara (Leaf of Ilkuwara Tree) (126-23) by Janice Stanley of South Australian Iwiri Aboriginal Corporation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Janice is the third generation of Stanley women to create artwork at Ernabella Arts. She is an early career painter and ceramic artist. Her grandmother is founding artist and traditional healer Tjariya Stanley, and her aunts are senior artists Alison Milyika Carroll and Renita and Inawinytji Stanley.
When Janice was still at school she would come into the art centre and watch her grandmother and aunties creating artworks. After finishing school she was part of a circus troupe that went on excursion to Christmas Island off the coast of WA. It was there that Janice learnt about lakes. She also saw them from the air for the first time, and that became the inspiration for her paintings.
Janice lives in Pukatja with her husband and has two children.
