Judy Napangardi Watson was born at Yarungkanji, Mt. Doreen Staion, at the ime when many Warlpiri and other Central and Western Desert Peoples were living a tradiional nomadic life. With her family Judy made many trips on foot to her country and lived for long periods at Mina Mina and Yingipurlangu, her ancestral country on the border of the Tanami and Gibson Deserts. These places are rich in bush tucker such as wanakiji, bush plums, yakajirri, bush tomatoes, and wardapi, sand goanna. Judy sill frequently goes huning in the country west of Yuendumu, near her homelands. Judy was taught paining by her elder sister, Maggie Napangardi Watson. She painted alongside her at Warlukurlangu Arists Aboriginal Corporaion, for a number of years, developing her own unique style. Though a very tiny woman Judy had ten children, four of whom she outlived. She was a woman of incredible energy; this was transmitted to her work through her dynamic use of colour, and energeic "dragged doing" style. She was at the forefront of a move towards more abstract rendering of Jukurrpa by Warlpiri arists; however her work retains strong kurruwarri, the details which tell of the sacredness of place and song in her culture.
