CHATELLE, WILLIAM & LATOYA KAMARA EDWARDS - from Darwin N.TLouise Numina is one of six well known desert artists: the Numina Sisters. Like her sisters and mother she comes from a long line of desert painters of the contemporary Aboriginal art and dot-dot central desert movement.
Louise started painting in 1981 after being taught by her well renowned painter aunties: Gloria and Kathleen Petyerre, who are well established artists in Alice Springs.
Louise has lived in Darwin since 1995 and has three young children, Chantelle, William and Latoya.
Knowing, carrying and reinforcing the stories that have been taught to Louise by her parents, grandparents and aunts, gives respect for Country and ancestors. By teaching her children to paint Louise is keeping the stories and traditional practices alive.
The knowledge must be retold repeatedly and handed on from generation to generation
