Kathy Dodd was born at Imanpa near Mount Ebenezer in the Northern Territory. Kathy is married to Sandy Dodd, the son of Margaret and Sammy Dodd from Mimila. Both of Kathy’s parents passed away when she was very young. Kathy has three children, two sons (one deceased) and a daughter.
Kathy commenced making baskets for Tjanpi Desert Weavers in 2010, then following a workshop held at Mimili in mid-2011 commenced making sculptures. Her creative flair and skill as a sculptor soon became evident. Like so many of the Tjanpi weavers, Kathy has a wonderful eye for detail and is a keen observer of the natural world. Her expressive works reveal her great dexterity as a sculptor.
