Mary Namijinpa Hudson is the daughter of Daphne Napururrla White and Peter Hudson. She is the granddaughter of Ursula Napangardi Hudson and Freda Napaljarri Jurrah. Her sister, Vanetta, is also a painter with Warlukurlangu Art Centre.
Mary paints her father's Warlukurlangu Jukurrpa (Fire Dreaming), stories which relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. She uses pattern and colour to develop a modern interpretation of her traditional culture.
