Roxanne Petrick | Artist Profile

Details of Roxanne Petrick


Roxanne was born in Alice Springs. Her father’s country is north east of Harts Range at Irrelirre Outstation. That’s where Roxanne spent most of her time growing up. She says in that country there are lots of hills, lots of kangaroo, porcupine, goanna, perentie and emu. All this food meant it was good country for hunting. Roxanne went everyday on the bus from Irrelirre to the school at Harts Range. One day she came to Alice Springs for a sports weekend and met her husband. Now they live together at Larapinta Valley Town Camp where her husband’s family has always lived. Roxanne started coming to the art room in 2015 when her husband started work at the learning centre. Now she comes every day to sew. She says she loves the bright colours of the wool and cottons;they give her lots of ideas.
