About Angela Kelly

Angela Parlinjirri started painting in 2000 as a hobby and interest and to extend her knowledge in traditional culture. Now she is a dedicated artist, spending much of her free time with paint and canvas. Through this she has learnt much of her yawulyu or story, dance and country. Angela is a family lady, travelling between Lajamanu and Milingimbi, NT, to visit her sons.  Travel to her father’s country, Warlu-kurlangu (south west of Yuendumu), is relatively easy, but travel to her mother’s country, Yinapaka, is very difficult because of the remoteness ands he has only been there once, in 2009. Angela was born in WA near the Bungle Bungles on Lansdowne Station. Her style of art is distinctive, a manipulation of dots and rich texture and colour.
