Rosalind Yibardi is a senior artist and director of Tjarlirli and Kaltukatjara Art. She is also a member of both the NPY Women’s Council and the acclaimed Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir.

Rosalind was born near Puta Puta, around 90 kilometres east of Kaltukatjara (Docker River). She has lived and travelled throughout the Western Desert region. As a young girl, she lived in Putarti, before travelling through the ranges on a camel-drawn cart to Tempe Downs.

Rosalind moved to Kaltukatjara with her three children, to live closer to her birthplace.
