Artist Bio

Lynette Corby Nungarraryi (born 1958) is an exceptional Indigenous Australian artist from the remote Mount Liebig community, also known as “Watiyawanu” in the Northern Territory (325km west of Alice Springs).

Lynette spent time learning to paint in the famous artist community in Papunya Tula, alongside many great artists. Lynette has also worked as an assistant teacher in her community at Mount Liebig.

Lynette’s paintings depict “Tree Root Dreaming” and “Rock Holes” in varying styles and designs that evolve as Lynette refines her talent.

Lynette’s excellent sense of colour and composition gives her artworks a three-dimensional effect and the illusion of movement over the canvas.

Lynette was chosen for the 20th Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award Survey Exhibition. The painting “Women’s Law and Culture Meeting at Mount Liebig” is now in the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia.
