Biography

Jane Gimme is the daughter of renowned Indigenous artist Eubena Nampitjin (deceased). Although Jane grew up in the old Balgo mission, her mother ensured that Jane 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 employs bright colors with 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. She has been on the Warlayirti Artists' Board for many years, including being Chair and Vice Chair.
