Mitjili Napurrula is a Pintupi woman from the Haasts Bluff region in the Northern Territory and began painting at the Ikuntji Women's Centre in 1993.  Her style is reminiscent of that of her husband, acclaimed artist and winner of the 1999 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award, Long Tom Tjapanangka.

Mitjili predominantly paints her father's Country, the pristine hills, bushes and trees of Uwalki.  Her canvases are patterned with bold, vibrant colours and contain an incredible energy.  Her distinctive style has gained her a strong following within Australia and internationally.
