Louise Numina is from Stirling Station near Tennant Creek. She is the niece of both Gloria and Kathleen Petyarre. Like Gloria Louise paints the dreaming of the Kurrajong leaves. In Aboriginal culture women collect these leaves from around the central desert area. They are used for medicinal purposes in pain relief and also applied to cuts and bruises. My eye is always drawn to Louise's work. Her brush work is confident and subtle and her colours and compositions are always balanced and pleasing. In short, Louise knows how to paint, and this is no surprise as she is a Fine Arts graduate from the Northern Territory University. This fine arts background adds a unique element to her traditional Bush Medicine leaf dreamings. [More]
