Lives and works


Olive Yapinyka Lawson is an artist belonging to the Ngaanyatjarra language and cultural group and lives in the remote community of Warburton. Olive learnt to weave baskets and sculptures from watching her mother and attending an Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunyjatjara Womens’ Council AGM where a workshop was conducted. She loves to make “baskets, goannas, birds, anything really”. Olive is also a painter and woodworker, spreading her time between the three art forms.
