Portrait image of Noreen Dixon

Noreen Dixon

Noreen Dixon was born in Alice Springs, but moved to Fregon (Kaltjiti) community and then to Haasts Bluff as a child. Noreen comes from a highly accomplished family of artists. She is the daughter of painter and fibre artist Anne Dixon and Pastor Simon Dixon, the granddaughter of acclaimed artist, Alice Nampitjinpa and great-granddaughter of founding Papunya Tula painter, Uta Uta Tjangala.
Noreen speaks both Pitjantjara and Luritja as well as English. She learnt to paint while in her mother’s sacred country at Waturru in South Australia. The Watarru collaborative are well-known for producing large-scale collaborative works. Noreen often painted in company of her mother, learning her mother’s stories, before her mother passed away. She was taught about dreaming by her maternal grandmother, who would sing songs to tell the stories to the younger generation. However, Noreen paints a different part of the story to her mother, focusing on two sisters. As well as painting, Noreen learned Ininti (seed) jewellery-making from her grandmother, and has helped run Ininti-making workshops at the Darwin Art Fair. Noreen likes to work with her sister-in-law Virgillia and aunty Kelly Dixon, fellow Ikuntji Artists.
