Margaret Jangala Gallagher was born in Alice Springs Hospital in 1998, the closest hospital to Nyirripi, a remote aboriginal community located approximately 420 km north-west of Alice Springs and approx. 130 km north-west of Yuendumu, in the Northern Territory of Australia. She is the daughter of Andrea Nungarrayi Wilson and Chris Japanangka Michaels and granddaughter of Alice Nampijinpa Henworth, all major Warlpiri artists. Antonia went to St Mary’s School in Broome, graduating in 2012. When she finished school, she went back to Nyirripi and worked at the Learning Centre run by the Batchelor Institute, an Indigenous Tertiary Education Program, where Antonia assisted students with computer skills.

Margaret paints with her mother and learnt to paint watching her mother and other people in the community painting. She particularly enjoys painting with her mother as it is an opportunity for her and her mother to share their Jukurrpa stories, Dreamings passed down to her by her father and mother and their parents before them for millennia. Margaret paints her Yankirri Jakurrpa (Emu Dreaming) from her father’s side and this Jukurrpa story belongs to Jangala/Jampijinpa men and Nangala/Nampijinpa women. 

The kangaroo decoration makes a small ethical gift for Christmas. It is perfect for family, friends and corporate gifting. Lightweight it is also a unique Australian gift to send overseas.
