Born 1960, Bathurst Island, Northern Territory
Estelle Munkanome has been working with the Ngaruwanajirri Art Centre at Nguiu on Bathurst Island, Northern Territory, since 1996. Her early works with natural ochres were very delicate, but more recent paintings have become bolder in line, colour and dots.
The structure and ideas in Munkanome’s paintings are often reflected in her batiks. She is a very widely exhibited and collected artist throughout Australia.
Estelle Munkanome is represented by Ngaruwanajirri Art Centre.
