Roxanne Petrick

Roxanne was born in Alice Spring.s Her father's country is north east of Harts Range at Irrelirre Outstation. That is where Roxanne spent most of her time growing up. She says in that country there are lots of hills, lots of kangaroos, porcupine, goanna, perentie and emu. All this food meant it was good country for hunting. Roxanne went every day on the bus from Irrelirre to the school at Harts Range. One day she came to Alice Springs for the sports weekend and met her husband. Now they live together at the Larapinta Valley Town Camp where her husband's family have always lived. Roxanne started coming to the art room in 2015 when her husband started work at the learning centre. Now she comes everyday to sew. She says she loves the bright colours of the wool and cottons: they give her lots of ideas.

Her work is held in the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia
