Biography

In the early stages of Miriam’s artistic career, she explored the expression of her Tjukurpa (dreaming) through the medium of glass. Later, Miriam began painting, once she was granted permission by the elders to paint her grandfather’s dreaming - Wimmitji Tjapangarti (deceased).

Miriam has a talent for colour mixing and works hard on her technical abilities. Her paintings are infused with the powerful spirituality taught to her by Wimmitji when she was a little girl. She is a vibrant, traditional woman and the strength of her artistic merits and commitment to the cultural learnings are imbued in every painting.
