Alma Nungarrayi Granites

We have sadly learnt that one of our favourite artists who was also an incredibly inspirational women has passed away.  On our recent trip to our Aboriginal communities in  Australia we caught up with Alma.  She had been ill for some time but we believed she had beaten her illness so it was a dreadful shock to find out she has died.  Alma had started painting again following her illness and we were looking forward to having more of her works after her sell out show at Bay Gallery Home in 2015.  Sadly, this will not be the case.  

Alma was instrumental in helping obtain permission to create the 'My Country' interiors collection and for that we are forever grateful.  Our thoughts are with her family, the art centre staff and the Community.

 

 

 On our visit in Easter we caught up with Alma who shared her recent works with us.
