Collection: Minnie Pwerle

Minnie Pwerle, one of Australia’s most important indigenous artists, was an Alyawarre woman born in the Utopia region in the early 1920s. Minnie was a custodian for her country and her stunning artwork pays homage to her Dreamings, country and ancestors.

She draws on an ancient cultural tradition that has used visual gestures and pigments in body painting, rock art and sand painting to express connection to country for thousands of years. We are honoured to have had the opportunity to translate the work of Minnie Pwerle into a range of seven handmade rugs, and to give back to Minnie’s family and community through royalties to this day.
