Melissa Nungarrayi Larry

Melissa Nungarrayi Larry is from Nyirripi, a remote Aboriginal community located in the Central Desert Region of the Northern Territory of Australia.

She began painting with Warlukurlangu Artists in 2006. The Art Centre makes regular visits to Nyirripi, 140 km west of Yuendumu, to drop off canvas, paint and brushes for the artists and to collect finished artwork.

Melissa is a full-time artist and paints her Mother’s Jukurrpa, Dreamings which have been passed down over the generations for millennia and relate directly to the land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it.
