The women are in the area of the Porcupine dreaming. They travel between the Tjarlirli rockhole and the Tjukurla
rockhole in the Tingarri times. The sandhills of the region are depicted as the parallel lines bordering the pain􀆟ng. This is
Tjawena's mother's country where she grew up in the early days living a traditional nomadic life.

Her artworks represent the traditional homelands
associated with her people's ancestral heritage. The
iconography depicts sand dunes known as "tali" and rock
escarpments known as "puli", as well as waterholes and
food sources. Her designs are often used in body art
during traditional corroborees. The artworks depict the
physical markings that the ancient ancestors have provided
to give evidence of their activities during the time of
creation. Tjawina’s artworks are rich in symbolism and fine
detail, with brushwork and dots travelling steadily across
the canvas to reveal the undulating forms of her country.
Her extensive cultural and topographical knowledge are
evident in her paintings, which evoke the movement and
energy of desert landscapes. In the years that Tjawina has
been painting she has gained worldwide recognition,
participating in many national and international group
exhibitions. Her works are represented in private and
public collections in Australia and overseas.
