Colleen Wallace (born 1973) is a talented artist from the Aboriginal artist community “Ltyentye Apurte” (Santa Teresa), located about an hours drive away from Alice Springs, in the Northern Territory.
Colleen comes from a strong family tradition of Eastern Arrente painters, including Kathleen Wallace, Gabrielle Wallace and Cindy Wallace.
Colleen is known for her detailed dot paintings and vibrant use of colour in her “Dreamtime Sisters” series. Her paintings depict dancing ancestral spirit figures. The spirits are known as “Irrernte-Arenye”, who look after their Eastern Arrernte country in Central Australia.
Colleen’s distinctively decorative and colourful style has gained a broadly popular appeal amongst Indigenous art aficionados and collectors.
