Whilst Judy Watson often paints hair string that is closely associated with the Karnakurlangu Jurkurrpa acted out at the Mina Mina ceremonial site and Ngalyipi (Snake Vine), she has on occasions painted the Lizard Dreaming.

This painting depicts a major women’s ceremonial site known as Mina Mina, located near Lake Mackay in the Tanami Desert, north of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. 

Judy Watson is the cousin of Dorothy Napangardi (the daughter of Dorothy father’s brother). When Judy’s father died, Paddy (Dorothy’s father) took Judy in as his child. He said he felt towards her the same as his other children. 


Judy Napangardi Watson

Region: Yuendumu, NT

Born at Yarungkanji, Mt. Doreen Station (west of Yuendumu), Judy Napangardi Watson is a senior Warlpiri female painter. A woman of incredible energy that is transmitted to her work through her dynamic use of colour, and energetic “dragged dotting” 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.
