Margaret Loy Pula hails from an incredibly distinguished artistic family. She is the daughter of well known artist Kathleen Petyarre and the mother of Abie Loy Kemmare, also a rising star from the Utopia region. Both Abie and Margaret were taught to paint by Kathleen. Her aunties are the Petyarre sisters, all of whom are established artists. Margaret also lived for some time at Utopia where the art movement began with batik works.
Margaret paints her father’s dreaming and the stories that she depicts include country, bush food and ceremonial designs. Her story, “Anatye” or Bush Potato dreaming, is portrayed using a series of fine, detailed dots.
