Abie commenced painting c. 1994 under the guidance of her grandmother, Kathleen Petyarre (one of the seven famous sisters). Her paintings show the detailed designs of her stories using fine dotwork and contemporary designs.
Abie is a very talented and established artist. She was selected as a finalist in the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award (NATSIAA) in 1997 and 2001.
Abie’s work in batik was sent to Bali to be exhibited. Her works in acrylics have been exhibited in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and overseas.
