2023 Revealed Exhibition: New and Emerging WA Aboriginal Artists

Marcia Mitchell



Lives and works

Papulankutja / Blackstone

Marcia is the daughter of Anawari Inpiti Mitchell and Winston Mitchell, who are both very active community members and decision makers in Papulankutja. Marcia comes from a family of artists and was influenced by her parents to begin painting in 2009 when the new art centre was built. Marcia learnt how to paint by being around other artists, at home and at the art centre. No one taught her but she picked it up intuitively. She painted ‘any way’, developing her own unique style. Marcia has been involved in NPY Women’s Council and NG Media, an Yarnangu Corporation that supports cultural performance, recording, radio, video training, production and broadcast throughout the Ngaanyatjara Lands. Marcia paints in a style influenced by her uncle Tommy Mitchell’s (dec.) work. He painted the Walu Tjukurrpa, a story of two men and one boy camping at Walu Rockhole.
