Alperstein Mug - Maggie Long
Artwork by Maggie Long.
Maggie Long was born in the 40s near Sturt Creek Station in South Australia. She grew up living off the bush and learning from her elders about singing and dancing. She now lives in Kilkimby station with her family, but her paintings are all inspired by the stories she was told by her grandmother, growing up in the bush.
Alperstein works with the Yarliyil Art Centre (a local West Australian indigenous artists' community that Maggie is a part of) to produce these beautiful mugs. Artists are properly compensated and royalties are paid to the community.
Mugs are packaged with information about the artist and artwork.
