ARTIST BIO

Maureen Douglas was born in 1966 and is from the remote and renowned artist community of Amata, South Australia. Amata is located within the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY Lands) in the far north-west of South Australia.

Maureen lives with her husband and two daughters.

Maureen’s early painting experiences developed from learning her innate Dreaming within her local community which illustrated the sacred lands and natural formations within her Country. As such Maureen paint’s “My Country” which highlights the journey her ancestral spirits took during the Dreamtime to create the natural landscape of the artist’s Country. 

Maureen Douglas is also recognised for her depictions of ‘Seven Sisters Dreaming’ which tells of the women being chased by an ancestral man who is in love with them. To escape, the sisters ascend into the sky as stars and the ancestral man remains, still chasing the love of the seven sisters today… 

Maureen paints in a highly detailed and intricate dotting style, which is enhanced through her use of bold and contrasting colours.
