Lives and works


Topsy Farmer is a Pitjantjatjara artist. Born in Utju (Areyonga), she married Mr T. Farmer, and moved to Tjukurla where the family was instrumental in converting the outstation into a standalone community. Later, they lived in Yulara where her husband worked as a police officer. Topsy has lived in Alice Springs for many years while her husband received dialysis treatment, however when he sadly passed away she returned to live closer to her children and grandchildren. Topsy’s style is bright, joyful and unrestrained; she combines motifs of fllowers with organic patchworks of coloured dotting.
