Phyllis Donegan

Phyllis Donegan was born at Warburton Ranges in 1973 and is the youngest daugter of renowed painter Jimmy Donegan. She went to school at Amata and moved back to Pipalyatjara and Kalka in the homeland movement of the late 1970’s. As she was growing up she moved between Wingellina, Pipalyatjara and Amata. She started painting in Blackstone and it was there where she worked with her sister and mother on the Tjanpi Toyota that won the Telstra Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art award in 2005. She lives in Kalka with her family. Phyllis paints designs and iconography associated with the Seven Sisters and Wati Kutjara Tjukurpa stories. Her style is very geometric and precise.
