Most of Marlene Taylor’s life has been spent in and around Titjikala. Her father worked on Maryvale Station as a stockman and her mother worked in the homestead. Marlene attended high school in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) during her early teens and on returning to Titjikala she worked at the Women’s Centre and then moved over to the art centre. Marlene is a prolific artist and works across several mediums including batik, painting, ceramics, felting and punu. She played a role in the designing and batiking of several fabric lengths for the Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir tour of Germany in 2015.
