Angie has painted some of her country which is located around Purkitji (Sturt Creek). Depicted in Angie’s painting are women hunting pinyani (water lily) when the creek is full. To get the water lily you have to swim under water dig at the roots and collect the plant. Angie says that Pinyani is sweet and juicy and it tastes like apples and it’s the culture that her Tja Tja (grandmother) taught her as she grew her up.
