Pammy Kemarre Foster

Back to Parrtjima Curator & Artists

Pammy Kemarre Foster (Bush Medicine Plants) is a young emerging artist from Tennant Creek who now lives and paints in Ampilatwatja. Her work shows a strong connection to Country through a thorough understanding of the bush medicine she paints. Painting bush medicine stories is important because it helps to maintain knowledge and a strong culture for the community. The Ampilatwatja community made a conscious decision not to paint ‘altyerr’ dreaming stories. Instead, artists paint the Country where these stories belong.
