Anastasia Naiya Wilson, a Ngan’gikurunggurr woman was born in 1974. She is Regina Pilawuk Wilson’s middle daughter and an emerging artist at Durrmu Arts. She currently works at the women's safe house in Peppimenarti, which she has been working at since 2009.

Anastasia has inherited her mother’s dingo dreaming and openly paints this subject using dark ochres and black and white. More recently, Anastasia has been developing her weaving designs on canvas, as a result of the 2009 Basil Hall Editions workshop where she produced two etchings and one collagraph – all based on traditional wupun (coil basket) and warrgardi (dilly bag) designs.

Durrmu Arts is renowned for its fine, contemporary art production, particularly acrylic paintings and fibre work. The women of Peppimenarti are traditionally weavers and have transposed their knowledge of fibre and textiles onto the canvas. The men’s art lies in the production of body paint designs and cultural articles. Many of the male artists paint their inherited didgeridu designs. Durrmu Arts is a member of the Indigenous Art Code and ANKA (Arnhem, Northern and Kimberley Artists).
