Artist Biography

Dallas Smythe was born at Wiluna, grew up in Warburton and now lives in Warakurna. All of these are remote communities in the central desert region of Western Australia.

Although Dallas has only been making Tjanpi baskets and sculptures for a short time , she is rapidly gaining a strong reputation as an exciting and innovative Tjanpi artist. Dallas’s grandmother Nora Holland is a well known painter and Tjanpi weaver, and has been a strong teacher and support for her.

Dallas likes to experiment with new materials and styles and she gets her inspiration from family and community life.
