About Biddy

Biddy Bunwarrie lives at Warralong. She paints most days in the room provided by the Strelley Community School for the Kartimarta Brush Artists which was established in July 2009, supporting Nyangumarta and Martu painters from Strelley, Warralong and Hedland communities. 

Her language is Nyangumarta and her birth date is unknown. She says she was born in the desert north of Sand-fire. At Warralong she likes to go fishing at Muylie to a place that is for old ladies. Biddy likes vibrant colours. Her paintings are mainly about her life growing up and travelling from place to place with her mother. Biddy says she was six years old when she walked from Broome to Port Hedland with her mother, eating bush tucker along the way. Many of Biddy’s paintings are about her walking around from place to place, ‘geometric maps’ of the land, waterholes and the spring waters that run under the land.
