Maringka Burton
Maringka was born in 1948 in Wingellina, Western Australia. She grew up in Ernabella, where she learnt to sing in Amata and do Inma (dancing.)
She now sings for the Ernabella choir, singing and dancing at the opening of the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Maringka was the first female artist at Iwantja, where she is now a senior lady, helping out at the centre.

Maringka works in a variety of media, making baskets, weavings, linocuts, paintings, punu (wooden animals) and piti (wooden artefacts). In her paintings, Maringka uses a traditional, muted palette and fine dotting technique to depict Tjukurrpa (dreaming) and tjukula (rock holes) and bush tucker animals.

“I am a senior lady at Iwantja, and I began working as an artist a long time ago. Me and Mrs Singer were the first women artists here. I help look after the art centre and go to the big meetings for them. I also enjoy singing and I travelled to sing in the ceremony for the Sydney Olympic Games. My father was a special Ngangkari (traditional healer) and he taught me about healing; now I am Ngangkari too. I do lots of work for the women’s council, I’m always working and supporting Anangu women. As artists and as a community, we should always do more work with the young people, making things together and teaching them about the old ways, always remembering country, this is a good way.”
