Leah Nampijinpa Sampson
Leah Nampijinpa Sampson was born in 1990 and comes from Yuendumu Community, approximately 300km from Alice Springs in Central Australia. Growing up in Yuendumu, Leah was exposed to painting from a young age with her mother Lynette Napanangka Sampson, an artist with Warlukurlangu Art Centre in Yuendumu.
When Lead graduated school in 2006 she began painting for Warlukurlangu Art Centre herself. She has painted consistently since that time, and shares her Dreamings through her artwork. Her paintings depict Women's Dreaming, Bush Onion Dreaming, Budgerigar Dreaming from her mothers side and Emu and Water Dreaming from her father's side. These stories have been passed down through Leah's family for many generations. These Dreamings relate directly to the land and country as well as its features including places, plants and animals.
From 2017 Central Art is excited to feature some of Leah's artworks.
