'Tuppy creates dynamic brush paintings with a rhythmic layering of dots. Her brilliant blocks of colour highlight elements of the Maku Tjukurpa (witchetty grub story).'
She shares: "My name is Tuppy Goodwin. I paint the Antara storyline, Maku Tjukurpa. The Witchetty Grub story is truly huge, a big ceremony. There are three deep rock holes where we go for ceremony. It's a very old storyline from a long time ago, and I was taught about it when I moved to Mimili as a young girl. Now I am look after it and teach the children about it, the Antara story."
