Living for the greater part of her life in Alice Springs, Dorothy began painting in 1987 with generic ‘bush tucker’ designs. Dorothy’s recent paintings depict elaborate and elegant interpretations of country, including concentrations of finely veiled grids over predominantly white or black grounds. In 2001, Dorothy won the coveted Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award for a black and white work, Salt on Mina Mina. In 2002, Dorothy held a major survey of her work at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.
Her works feature in private and public collections, such as those in the National Gallery of Australia and National Gallery of Victoria, as well as in international collections in Germany, USA and the Netherlands
