Rene Kulitja grew up in Ernabella and Amata in the north of SA before marrying and moving to the NT community of Docker River. Rene is a well-known artist who has exhibited nationally and internationally, representing TjanpiDesert Weavers in the 2015 Venice Biennale. Her most famous works include the Yananyi Dreaming design, which covers a Qantas Boeing 737, and the artwork surrounding the Statement from the Heart.

Also known as Sharmaine Lesley, Charmaine Kulitja is the daughter of well-known artist Rene Kulitja and the granddaughter of renowned wood carvers Topsy Tjulyata and Walter Pukutiwara. She is working as a painter for Walkatjara Art Uluru and Maruku Arts, where she is also a tour guide and dancer.

Based at Mutitjulu within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Christine Brumby and her extended family have a strong involvement in looking after their traditional country. Christine was a Senior Tour Guide for the locally owned Maruku Arts Tours, interpreting the Tjukurpa (the foundation of Anangu life and culture) of Uluru and her cultural traditions. She has been painting as an ‘artist in residence’ for many years, both with Walkatjara Art Uluru and Maruku Arts.
