By Evelyn Pultara


Evelyn Pultara was born circa 1940 at Woodgreen Station, near Utopia, north east of Alice Springs, Northern Territory. She is a traditional Anmetyarre woman and the sister of Greenie Petyarre, famous Utopian artist, and niece of the late Emily Kame Kngwarrye. She is also the mother of six children, living in the township of Wilora, Northern Territory, 200km north of Alice Springs.


Evelyn’s totem is the Bush Yam (Antwelarr), which has always been an abundant food and water source to the Anmetyarre people. She pays homage to her totem through song, dance and now art.


Evelyn commenced painting in 1997 and is now one of the most exciting emerging artists from Central Australia. Evelyn’s paintings are vibrant depictions inspired by the stories and songs of the harsh desert landscape.
