Mary Kemarre Morton is Audrey's mother and Billy Stockman Morton Pitjara 1921-2007 father, both well-known Australian artists. Audrey inherited the artistic gene and the family Dreaming stories. Audrey was raised by family of well-known indigenous artists, including Emily Kame Kngwarreye (1910-1996) and three sisters Gracie Morton, Lucky Morton and Ruby Morton. Audrey participated in batik workshops that were held in Utopia from 1977 to 1987. Her work is represented in the Holmes á Court Collection and exhibited extensively within Australia and around the world. Made up of fine dashes and intricate details, Audrey Moron Kngwarreye paintings are hypnotic, images seems to move with the viewer’s eyes and floats in the air. Her paintings have the sheer physical presence of the much contemporary work of art, able to capture a multi-dimensional aspect of space and depth.
