Biography

Ivy was born at Hermannsburg in 1952, the daughter of well-known watercolour artist Edwin Pareroultja. Ivy’s father and his two brothers Reuben and Otto were part of the original Hermannsburg Watercolour movement and were all skilled watercolour artists. As a young woman, Ivy learnt to paint in this style and developed a gift for watercolour landscapes.
Ivy moved to Alice Springs in 1994 and continues to paint in the tradition of her father and uncles. Her work uses bold colours successfully creating emotive depictions of the Central Desert landscape.
Ivy’s work is extremely popular and has been acquired by institutions such as the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.
