Gracie Pwerle Morton [1956-]

Gracie Pwerle Morton is a highly credentialed artist, whose career began in the 1970s when she helped pioneer the Utopia Women's Batik Group and continued onto canvas in the late 1980s. Gracie hails from an impressive artistic pedigree - her mother is Myrtle Petarre, and Kathleen and Gloria Petyarre are her first cousins. She is also a blood sister to Polly Nungala Nelson. Gracie is also a direct descendant of the most famous female indigenous artist of them all, the late great Emily Kame Kngwarreye.
