Lives and works

Irrunytju Community

Maureen was born in Amata Community hospital on the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands of South Australia and is the eldest daughter of Pitantjatjara artist Rene Nelson. Working in sculpture and on canvas, Maureen uses a strong, vibrant colour pallet to paint the landscapes of Pukurra, the Tali (sand hill) Country of her father and grandfather. Developing her own distinct painting style, Maureen’s work is bold and colourful, depicting significant landmarks including rock holes and puli (hills).
