Anthalia Thomas lives in Warralong with her grandmother May Chapman, her mum Sandra Thomas and Aunty Doreen Chapman. The photo below shows that Anthalia comes from a well-known family in the Pilbara who are painters.
Anthalia likes to work alongside other young artists. She designs her own paintings and uses colour carefully. She enjoys making a connection to people and finds it easy to make friends. One of Anthalia’s paintings was screen printed on swimwear worn by Fair Game members.
This painting is called ‘Animals Gathering at the Waterhole’ depicting her thoughts about her mob’s traditional foods they hunt around Warralong.
KARNTIMARTA BRUSH ARTISTS Warralong 2018 was established in July 2009 supporting Nyangumarta and Martu painters from Strelley, Warralong and Hedland communities.
