Evelyn was born in 1986 in Alice Springs Hospital, the closest hospital to Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community 290 km north-west of Alice Springs in Australia. She is the daughter of Tina Napangardi Martin Robertson and grand-daughter of Shorty Jangala Robertson, both artists in their own right. Evelyn attended the local school in Yuendumu.
In 2005 she moved to Nyirripi with her family and still lives there. She has worked for the Child Care Centre, the local shop and now works at the school. Evelyn has been painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation; an Aboriginal owned and governed Art Centre, since 2007. She mainly paints her Grandfather’s Jukurrpa stories, but also her Father’s and her Grandmother’s Jukurrpa, Dreamings which relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. “As a little girl I use to watch My Grandmother and Mum paint and they would tell me a story about the painting, the dream-time”.Evelyn uses an unrestricted palette to develop a modern interpretation of her traditional culture.
