Julianne Nungarrayi Turner
Julianne was born in 1975 at Yuenlamu (Mount Allan) in central Australia and now lives in Adelaide, a professional Artist and Language Interpreter.
At an early age Julianne was influenced and taught to paint by her mother Maureen Hudson Nampijinpa; a well known and respected Warlpiri artist.
Julianne depicts intricate language that shows us beautiful landscapes and tells us stories that hold the power of infinite generations of telling.
The influence of the Women’s Businesses in Community life runs through Julianne’s Stories and Dreaming’s telling of gathering of foods and medicines.

“Budgerigar Dreaming over My Country”
“We watch the birds flying in patterns on the winds, while we sit with the ground in our camps. By ourself or with others, day or night, the Budgerigar Dreaming is there, sharing the space and talking to us if we can listen, when everything is quiet, the birds and animals are part of the quiet even though they are making a noise sometimes, also maybe they telling us something, or just singing. Which is also telling us something, to take time to enjoy them”
