Kathleen was born in 1970 in Central Australia but moved to Queensland in her early years to live with her Father and siblings. In 1980 she and her siblings returned to the community of Hermannsburg in Central Australia to live with their Mother. It was these formative years that helped her bring her culture and awareness to the love of art.
Kathleen bases her art on her early childhood experiences and her life in general. Her husband and two sons still hunt Emu and Kangaroo and they often go camping around her husband’s traditional land west of Alice Springs.
Kathleen is also gaining recognition of her jewellery design. She started using natural seeds and more traditional forms of design but now has elevated to being chosen to exhibit her works in Sydney in April 2014.
