Kim Mahood

Kim Mahood is a writer, artist and mapmaker.

She divides her time between a dual-occupancy property she shares with other artists on the outskirts of Canberra, and extended trips to remote Australia for map-making projects. For the past thirty years she has returned regularly to Central Australia and the Tanami desert, where she grew up, and maintains her connection with the Warlpiri and Walmajarri people of the region.

Her cross-cultural mapping work extends from the remote desert to the city, and is designed to map the Indigenous landscape back into visibility, and to foster communication and understanding between Indigenous and settler Australians.
