Quilts, and a whole lot more…

Marie Ellis (aka Marie E. Ellis) is a well know Aboriginal artist from Alice Springs (Amoonguna Community.) Marie is the daughter of Michael Nelson Jakamarra, a well known Papunya artist. Roseanne, her sister, is an Arrente and a Warlpiri woman. Salt Plain, Marie’s Aboriginal fabric, depicts salt plains or salt pans.
Salt Plains are surrounded by extensive areas of sand dunes in a flat, arid landscape. Central Australia is a big and dry place with numerous large, dry salt lakes, especially in the Northern Territory. These creviced lakes are even more spectacular on the ground, typifying the beauty of the harsh lands of Australia, specifically at dawn and dusk.
