Emily Cullinan

/ Country

/ Cat.No: 10026


Emily Cullinan was born in rugged bush land, close to the Eastern community of Mimili in Central Australia. Her father was a respected cultural law man, and taught her and her two young sisters to live a traditional life. Emily did not encounter European settlers until she was a teenager.

Emily and her family used to travel long distances by walking or occasionally hitching wagons to camels and donkeys, they would camp at night inside hand built shelters in the bush, sleeping in the warm sand.

The walk between Indulkana and Mimili regions took her 5 days, she recalls traveling this route many times to visit family.

Emily's powerful paintings depict the iconic waterholes, majestic boulders, and river beds she would cross on her journey.

Emily paints for Iwantja Arts in an artist studio located within the remote indigenous community of Indulkana.
