Alice Nampitjinpa Dixon
Alice Nampitjinpa Dixon is one of 51 finalists selected for the 2021 Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award.
Alice (dec.) was born in 1943 near Talaalpi, which is a swamp near and a little bit to the east of Walungurru on the Western Australian border. Prior to her painting Alice worked for many years at the Kintore School teaching the young girls dancing and the traditions of the desert people. Alice started painting on the “Minyama Tjukurrpa” – the Kintore Haasts Bluff collaborative canvas project. As a painter she is inspired by her rich cultural heritage, and thrives when involved with her stories and lore.
