Her aunt is the celebrated artist, Gloria Petyarre.

Over the years, Abie has further developed her skills as an artist to become an extraordinarily talented colourist.

Abie is a custodian of the Bush Hen Dreaming. Her Bush Hen Dreaming Paintings represent the bush hen travelling in search of bush seeds scattered across the country. Other themes in Abie's paintings are the Bush Medicine Leaf Dreaming, Emu Dreaming, and Sandhills and Body Paint Designs including Awelye.

Her works are held in major collections all over the world. Batik work exhibited in Bali, works on canvas exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally.

Abie now spends her time between Mosquito Bore with her family, Lake Nash (Alpurrurulam) and her grandmothers home in Alice Springs.
