Artist Profile - Coralie Peterman


Coralie Peterman is an artist belonging to the Pitjantjatjara language and cultural group. She was born in 1965 at Mt Davis, near Piplaytjarra SA.  Coralie grew up here in Irrunytju where she remembers going out hunting and for picnics with her family.

"We always go hunting, walking around and looking around for rabbits and goanna out bush...over that way. We went, my mother and father and all our family so we could have a good feed. We would camp for the night or two nights then come back home here to Irrunytju. All the white fellas were over there at the mine and we didn't know what they were doing."

She comes to the art centre with her daughter Noelene and her three grandchildren - Deandra, Bernadette and Anna and they all paint together.
