Description

Leonie Bennett is an artist belonging to the Ngaanyatjarra language and cultural group, and lives in the remote community of Kaltukatjara (Docker River) in the Northern Territory.

Leonie is a keen fibre artist who loves creating quirky sculptural representations of the animals she sees out bush, such as mingkirri (mouse), Ɵnka (lizard) and tjilkamarta (echidna). Her weaving technique allows the underlying tjanpi (grass) in a sculpture to be glimpsed.

 

The journey continues. Empowering Indigenous entrepreneurs & artists.
