About The Artist
Julie was born c… 1973 at Yuendumu which is located in the Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory (approx. 370km North West of Alice Springs). Julie’s mother is the late “Dorothy Napangardi” who is recognized as one of Australia’s prominent indigenous female artists and a past Telstra Award winning artist.
From the latter part of the 1990’s Julie painted in close proximity to her mother and as such developed a comparable style – detailed and absorbing. The focus of her work portrays the landscape of her country near “Mina Mina” of which she is a traditional custodian.
Her paintings highlight the rocky outcrops and the flowing deep water springs, thus creating an illusion of movement all through the canvas. More recently Julie has started to paint more frequently which as a result, now has her works being exhibited in numerous shows and exhibitions around the country on a regular basis.
