Cynthia Burke was born in Alice Springs and grew up in the central desert of Western Australia. She has been a youth and media worker for many years and has hosted a weekly radio programme for Radio NGm. Cynthia is an internationally exhibited painter with Warakurna Artists and very successful with Tjanpi Desert Weavers. She is one of Maruku’s foremost up and coming wood carvers, and in 2014 became one of its youngest directors. She carries on the traditions of the Tjukurpa, the Law and way of life governing her country. Cynthia is one of the most skilled contemporary carvers at Maruku Arts. She uses abstract sculptures to tell her stories. In addition, she works on Walka Boards and produces traditional forms like animals or different kind of bowls in her own very modern style.
