Our Culture

Added by Munupi Arts

Description Maree has been painting at Munupi since 1989. She married well known Aboriginal potter Eddie Puruntatameri who founded both the Tiwi Pottery on Bathurst Island and Pirlangimpi Pottery at Munupi Arts & Crafts at Melville Island, and moved to the Tiwi Islands when she was 16 years old. Her style reflects traditional influences from her birthplace in the desert, north of Alice Springs, as well as Tiwi influences. Maree is the mother of six children all of which have inherited their parents’ artistic abilities.
