Chek Chek (Finch Dreaming) painted by South Australian artist Maureen Hudson Nampinjinpa. Maureen was born in the bush at Mt Allan cattle station (Northern Territory) in 1959. This cattle station is called Yuelamu and is aboriginal owned and run today. This painting shows a recent dreaming Maureen had looking out over her land, a vision of nesting finches in far off trees inspired her to paint this song line showing the vast colony of Finch nests across the canvas.
Maureen attended school at the Yuendumu settlement in the 1960's and later returned to Mt Allan and worked as a school teacher's assistant for 3 years. Maureen Hudson NAMPINJINPA began painting in 1981.
