Both Rosalind’s mother and grandmother were famous Ngangkari’s (traditional healers) in the western country of the APY Lands, she has many family members in the Amata community. Rosalind spent a life time outdoors with her mother and grandmother traveling to visit family and friends in need of healing.
Her paintings allude to a healing energy and strive to encompass the desert landscape. They speak to a deep history of connection to both country and people. Richly coloured, her paintings reference hidden pathways across the lands, and subtly hint at the fluidity of movement and of journeys. Her painterly marks weave colour through the canvas, flickering with an energy and excitement.
Rosalind paints for Iwantja Arts and artist studio located within the remote Indigenous community of Indulkana, on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands.
