 Alice Guinness is a Yindjibarndi woman who was born at Goodabinyia. Alice has been painting for many years at art centres across Roebourne. The majority of Alice's work focuses on two stories the Burndud/ Bundut Circle and the Bajilia (caperbush).

The Bajila (caper bush) is a native Australian plant and can be found in the Pilbara. It is known as a good source of bush tucker, bush medicine and food for emus. Every bajila painting has its own life, each holds Alice’s deep attachment to her ngurra and the plants that give her joy. She describes the process of eating the fruits with her cousin Banyji Pansy saying that ‘when you eat the fruit, you suck the flesh and the seeds are rolled around in your mouth and then spat out. Where the seeds fall, new plants grow’.
