Roxanne Newberry

Martumili Artists

“My name is Roxanne Newberry I’m from Warakurna. I’ve been painting for a few years now.  I was watching my sister, Cynthia Burke, and my mother, Jorna Newberry, paint. I’d sometimes help them with their painting.  It gave me some ideas for my painting. I love doing aerial landscapes of my father’s Country. I was watching Cynthia weave at Tjanpi Desert Weavers, then I decided to do my own. When I’m painting or weaving I forget about everything and everyone, forget about my worries. It makes me feel like me.”
