About Maringka Baker

Maringka Baker is a senior Pitjantjatjara artist from the remote community of Kanpi in far north west South Australia.

Her deep spiritual connection to her Country is evident in her artistic voice that speaks to ceremony and story through her mastery of tone, and command of colour and composition.

Maringka is recognised as one of Australia’s most accomplished artists, with works held by the National Gallery of Australia and the Parliament House Art Collection. Maringka is credited with inspiring a new generation of First Nations artists from her family and community through teaching and mentoring.
