Artists are at the core of everything we do

Priscilla is an artist belonging to the Ngaanyatjarra language and cultural group, whose creative and arts practice covers a broad range of disciplines.

Priscilla grew up and continues to reside in the remote community of Mantamaru, Western Australia, located 1600 km north east of Perth.

Priscilla began weaving in 2019 at a Tjanpi Desert Weavers skills development workshop in Mantamaru, Western Australia. Prior to this she had watched her aunt, fellow Tjanpi artist Peggy Simms weaving baskets around the fire at night. 

Priscilla is inspired by central Australian animals and focuses on sculpting tjilkamarta (echidna), mingkirri (mice), camels and papas (dogs) using a mix of minarri (native grass), raffia and wool.
