Anyupa Stevens

Anyupa was born in the bush at a homeland called Double Tank near Fregon in 1981. Her father’s country is Piltati, an important waterhole close to Nyapari Community and a strong theme in her work. Her mother’s place is Aeronga in the Northern Territory.

She lives at Nyapari with her husband and three children and has a full time job as an Anangu Teacher’s Aid at Murputja School. Anyupa’s grandmother is the late Kunmanara (Eileen Yaritja) Stevens, from whom she draws her inspiration. Her paintings depict the trips to country she made with her grandmother as a child.
