Biography

Benisa is the wife of Justin Corby. She is also the grand- daughter of renowned Ikuntji artist Narputta Nangala Jugadai. Since Justin has been painting at the art centre Benisa has also begun painting again in 2008, after a period where she preferred to work in various full time jobs at Haasts Bluff. Initially painting bush flowers and bush tucker, she now paints a more contemporary style, depicting various types of rock formations which are an integral part of the Haasts Bluff landscape.
