About the Artist
Born: 28th October 1981
Loretta Jones belongs to a strong family of artists. She grew up at Arawerr (Soapy Bore) which is in the Utopia Region, North East of Alice Springs. Her mother, Gypsy Jones, has been an artist for a long time. Loretta would have been taught to paint by Gypsy and other ladies in her community. This is also how she would have gained knowledge about the stories she paints.
Loretta has five sisters and four brothers (Jilly, Sandra, Agnes, Rhonda, Lilly, Anthony, Robert, Denny and Kevin), most of whom paint as well. She also has one son, Justin, who she continues to live with in the Utopia region as well as with her extended family.
