Born: Jupiter Well, WA
Denise Napangardi is an emerging artist who paints lyrical representations of her traditional women's stories from the Mt Liebig region in the Western Desert.
She is the younger sister of the established artist Lily Kelly Napangardi.
Her works are a visual meditation on the natural patterns observed in her traditional land. Many of Denise's paintings depict waterholes which are held sacred and are a vital part of survival for the nomadic tribes people.
Denise currently resides at Mt Liebig, an outstation of Papunya, with her husband and children.
