Minnie Pwerle (b. 1910, Utopia) was one of Australia’s greatest female Aboriginal artists.

Pwerle originated from the rural bush country, northeast of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. Her works are largely inspired by her involvement in traditional Aboriginal ceremonial practice and rituals where she was responsible for applying body paint designs to participants in women’s ceremonies. Pwerle was well missed and mourned by Aboriginal Art lovers all over the world upon her passing in 2006.
