Audrey is the daughter of Utopia artist Mary Morton Kemarre. Her sisters Lucky, Sarah and Ruby Morton are also well known in the Aboriginal art industry.

Along with her mother and sisters Audrey participated in batik workshops that were held in Utopia from 1977 to 1987. Her work is represented in the Holmes á Court Collection which was exhibited extensively within Australia and abroad.

Audrey, like her sisters, paints an extraordinary variety of stories which they say come from two countries: Ngkwarlerlanem and Arnkawenyerr, of which they belong to.  Audrey can also paint the ceremonial body paint designs (Awelye) belonging to these two countries as well as her mother’s country Antarrengeny.
