Jorna Newberry -Western Desert artist, niece of famed Indigenous artist Tommy Watson.

Jorna Newberry

Jorna Newberry is a Pitjantjatjara artist, born around 1959 at Angus Downs in the Northern Territory. Jorna Newberry lives between the communities of Warakurna and Irrunytju and the township of Alice Springs where she has family. In travelling from the remote communities to the town, Jorna Newberry continues to live both the traditional Aboriginal culture of her indigenous background and the contemporary culture of modern Australia.

Jorna Newberry is the niece of famous Aboriginal artist Tommy Watson. When visiting her lands she regularly goes bush with the women of her community to participate in traditional ceremonies. Jorna Newberry began painting in mid 1990s at Warakurna, and later joined painters at the Irrunytju Art Centre.

Over recent years Jorna Newberry has worked closely alongside her legendary uncle, Tommy Watson. She follows his instruction to favour abstraction as a stylistic means to ensure secrecy of important indigenous cultural matters, rather than taking a more figurative approach. Aboriginal art status – Rising Star.
