Josepha Petrick Kemarre Biography

Josepha was born at Santa Teresa, a mission approximately 80kms South East of Alice Springs. Here she lived a mostly traditional life, collecting bush foods and participating in ceremonies.
She moved to Utopia, a community known for its quality art, and began painting with acrylic paints on canvas in 1990.
The majority of Josepha’s works depict Bush Plum Dreaming, from her father’s country. This fruit is an important form of bush tucker for Josepha’s people. The intricate dotting and various colours in her works represent the fruit at its various ripening stages.
Josepha’s works have appeared in a number of exhibitions in both Australia and overseas.
