Wangkatjungka artist Nada Rawlins is represented in major national collections including National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria and Art Gallery of Western Australia. Her paintings of her birth country around the Percival Lakes detail the desert landscape and the critical locations of waterholes and soaks that exist in and around the salt pan country.

Nada Rawlins walked with her family north along the Canning Stock Route into the Kimberley where her people had been migrating for 30 years. Nada Rawlins arrived at Christmas Creek and settled at Fitzroy Crossing and Wangkatjungka community. She joined the painting movement at Fitzroy Crossing in the late 1980s and exhibited her work over the next three decades.

Nada Rawlins often tells the stories of the five main waterholes on her ancestral country, painting images of Kirriwirri, Linjalangu, Murtikujarra, Yurlpu and Yimiri. Kirriwirri is the major site for the artist – “This is Kirriwirri Jila. This is where I was born. My father passed away in this country. The water never dries up in this jila – this is living water. Near Kirriwirri there are lots of warla (salt lakes or claypans) where water collects after rain, and which are mostly salty. You can see the lines of salt which are left when the water dries up in the warla.” Aboriginal art status – Highly regarded artist.
