About

Anmanari was born in 1938 at Yateman's Bore. Her father was from Lupul while her mother was from west of Lupul. Anmanari and her family travelled east in response to the drought and harsh conditions experienced throughout the district in the early 1940's. On this journey east her family traveled with Tutuma Tjapanagarti's family - Eunice Jack's father, and a lifelong friendship was established between the two girls. Anmanari's family stopped at the ration station at Ikuntji, set up by PastorAlbrecht of the Hermannsburg Mission. Anmanari was married to the Papunya Tula artist Lionel Kantawarra Tjupurrula, and it was through him that her interest in painting developed. Anmanari is a very powerful law woman who commands great respect within her community. She has been a member of the Ikuntji Art Centre for many years and is highly regarded for her painting skills. Her tjukurrpa is the mulpu, or bush mushroom. Predominant themes in Anmanari's works are the Mulpu Tjukurrpa and the dancing women at Kungka Yunti, located south of Haasts Bluff.
