Born to artist Brandy Tjungurrayi and Nowee Nangala, Theresa Nowee comes from a lineage of fine painters. Executed within Theresa's fine dottng and subtle color movements, she paints her mother's country located near Balgo Community. Reflecting the landscape, she depicts Tjurnu a sacred rock hole surrounded by the various realms of the landscape. These different features of country include the spinifex grasses, desert
trees as well as readily found bush-tucker - pura (bush tomatoes), kantijilyi (raisins) and the delicious blackberries. In this unique painting, Theresa paints the landscape which is both culturally and physically important to human life.
