Juliette Nampijinpa Brown was born in 1970 and is an artist from Yuendumu Community, located approximately 3 hours from Alice Springs in Central Australia. Juilette is a Warlpiri woman with the primary focus of her paintings situated on the country of Mikanji. Her paintings are often titled Ngapa (Water) Dreaming.
Mkanji is a watercourse that is usually dry located to the West of Yuendumu. In this creek bed there are water soakages. Juilette uses a thick dotting technique to depict the area of Mikanji including its dry water soakages.
Juilette works closely with Warlukurlangu – Artists of Yuendumu and it is through them that her work is now featured in several galleries around Australia. Central Art is excited to be able to feature her paintings through our website as they provide a rich and cultural experience of Warlpiri life and culture and share this deep knowledge.
