Maureen Hudson - Australian Aboriginal Artist
Maureen Hudson Maureen Hudson was born in the bush on Mt Allan cattle station near Yuendumu. One of 10 children born to her mother Lena, Maureen is a full-blood cousin to the well known artist Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri. Maureen’s father Ben Jangala was the brother of Clifford’s mother, Ruth.

Maureen inherited Kanmarra and Womens Ceremony Dreaming from her mother, Warlu from her father and Ngapa from her grandfather. She inherited the sacred Warlpiri dreaming site of Warlukurlongu (Fire Country) from her father and grandfather.

Maureen was educated at Yuendumu. After observing senior artists for many years, she commenced painting in the late 1970s. In 1990, representing artists from the central desert, she travelled to Vanuatu for the Art Dock Show, the first international art show to be held in Vanuatu. She has been artist-in-residence for 15 years at Mulgara Gallery, Yulara. Her designs have been recreated in carpets.

Maureen has three children, Jillian, Gwenda and Anderson. Jillian, following in her mother’s footsteps is also painting at Yulara. Today Maureen lives in Adelaide, South Australia. She travels to Mt Allan for ceremony, sorry business and to look after grandchildren and in doing so still observes a traditional way of life.

Maureen’s paintings hang in many national and international collections.
