Ngukurr : NT

Gwenneth Blitner has lived in Ngukurr her whole life. She was born in the old Roper River Mission and was educated at the bush school. She learned painting from her brothers Glen and Donald Blitner and she now paints every day.

In bright, bold strokes, Gwenneth paints the landscape of Ngukurr, especially flowers and hills. Gwenneth often closes her eyes before she begins a painting. She says, “I like to think about this place and paint more.”
