As a young artist, Abie Loy Kemarre's paintings show the detailed designs of her stories, using fine dotting, as does her grandmother (Kathleen Petyarre) , and also bold contemporary works.

Over time, Abie Loy Kemarre's paintings further evolved through her skill as a talented colorist and during 2001/2002, Loy introduced a bolder, more abstract style in her Sandhills and Body painting series. These paintings are representational of her inherited Dreaming stories, however, these powerful images could be stylistically interpreted as abstract, expressionist and even post-modern.
