Judy was born in the middle of the 1930s in Yanungkanji, on the lands of the Mount Doreen farm. She repeatedly crossed by foot the traditional lands of her family, around the Mina Mina and Yingipurlangu sites, located between the Gibson and the Tanami deserts.
Judy began to paint for the cooperative of the Yuendumu community, in 1986.
She has developed a personal style, although strongly influenced by the style of the Warlpiri of Yuendumu, that is, very colourful. The background of Judy’s paintings are often structured with lines curved inwards, presenting strongly contrasting tints. Although she has also recently painted great paintings using only two colours, great sobriety for an artist of this linguistic group.
The most often, Judy is inspired by stories of the Mina Mina site, like most Napangardi, and by ceremonies of women.
