By Denise Ngwarraye Bonney.

The community of Ampilatwatja has made a conscious decision not to paint ‘altyerr’ dreaming stories. The ar􏰀tists paint their country, where those stories sit.

Denise has painted 'Tijamburra', her Grandmother's country.

"This is my Mother's Mother's country, out near Canteen Creek. We go hunti􏰀ng there for wild onions, goannas, echidnas and sugarbag honey in the trees. I like to hunt there, there's water all year round. Even if it doesn't look like there is, we follow the bird tracks to know where to dig and we find water.

This painti􏰀ng is a􏰁fter rain, many grasses are out, but the riverbed is s􏰀till sandy."

From living here in the remote community of Ampilatwatja, hun􏰀ting out in the bush and traveling for family and ceremonies, Denise knows and loves this land, her country.
