About the artist:

Judy Napangardi Watson

Judy Watson was born at Yarungkanji, Mt. Doreen Station, at the time when many Warlpiri & other Central & Western Desert Peoples were living a traditional nomadic life.

With her family Judy made many trips on foot to her country & lived for long periods at Mina Mina & Yingipurlangu, her ancestral
country on the border of the Tanami & Gibson Deserts. Judy was taught painting by her elder sister, Maggie Napangardi Watson. She painted alongside her at Warlukurlangu artists for a number of years, developing her own unique style.

She is at the forefront of a move towards more abstract rendering of Jukurrpa by Warlpiri artists, however her work retains strong kurruwarri, the details
which tell of the sacredness of place and song in her culture. Judy Napangardi Watson has been exhibiting artwork since 1990 througout Australia & around the world including exhibitions in England, USA, China, Japan & The Netherlands, Her works are featured in several major collections.
