Mignonette Jamin (b.1932, Madjalindy Valley, NT - 2010), paints the dynamics of her traditional Country expressing its characteristics with a repertoire of stylistic motifs that emphasise the underlying energy of place.
"At the middle of the painting is Meeway Billabong. Everywhere is spinifex (coastal plants of the grass family) and at the edges are all the bush palms. In my country there is spinifex everywhere. It is very big and a man can hide in this country"- Mignonette Jamin.
