Jane Gimme

Born at Tjumuntura in 1958, near the old Balgo mission, Jane is the eldest of renowned artist Eubena (Yupinya) Nampitjin's surviving daughters. Although Jane grew up in the old Balgo mission her mother ensured that she continued to practice the traditions of her culture. Currently, Jane is one of the primary language speakers and often grows-up the younger ones in the local community. Like her mother, Jane applies bright colours on her canvas, and her works are ones of precision and delicate structure. She paints with reverie: her style is continually evolving.

Jane is a respected member of the Wirrimanu (Balgo) community as well as church leader. She has been on the Warlayirti Artist Board for many years, including being Chair and Vice Chair.
