The community of Ampilatwatja made a conscious decision not to paint altyerr dreaming stories. The artists paint their country where those stories sit.
Alana has painted her country after rain where the ground may seem dry but the flowers and trees are green and growing strong.
Alana's mother Edie Holmes is a well known artist of Ampilatwatja, who taught Alana how to paint when she was a young child.
Like many mums, Alana is extremely busy with four children to look after and though she loves to paint she does not get the time to paint like she used to.
Based on the artwork by Alana Holmes.
