Joylene’s works are primarily ‘Women’s Tingari’ depictions of her country and the sacred women’s sites between the communities of Kintore and Kiwirkurra in the Western Desert of Central Australia. Her people would conduct important ceremonies at these sites and tell stories of travelling ancestors. Her choice of colours usually represent the more traditional pigments used for ground designs and body decoration. The stories and the iconography that are central to the knowledge base of Western Desert people provide a valuable resource to younger artists
