Judy Watson Napangardi was born in approximately 1925 at Yarungkanji (Mount Doreen Station) in the area of Yuendumu Community in Central Australia. It was during this time that many Warlpiri and other Central and Western Desert Aboriginal people were still living a traditional lifestyle which involved extensive travel through the desert. Her family including Judy would make many trips on foot through her traditional country on the border of the Tanami and Gibson Deserts. Her traditional country is at Mina Mina and it is through her art that she is able to share the traditional Dreaming stories associated with that country.
Through her paintings Judy recounts her journeys through the land when she and other Warlpiri women walked on foot for long periods of time gathering bush tucker such as Wanankijii, Yakajiri and Wardapi. Mina Mina country is a significant place for Napangardi and Napanangka women who are custodians of the Dreamings associated with the land.
