Amy Johnson

Amy’s paintings have an underlying theme of simplicity – she paints what she sees around her – the day to day happenings in her Country at Ngukurr on The Roper River. She has always lived near the billabongs, the birds, and the buffalo; this is the backdrop to Amy’s world…and an integral part of her cultural and traditional life.

The vibrant acrylic colours used by Amy enhance her story of life around the billabongs. She has a passion for colour and uses it to best advantage – her painterliness shines through in unbelievable skies and storybook trees as her animals and birds travel across her Country.

(Sadly Amy passed away January 2016).
