Maisie Ward Nungarrayi is a Luritja woman from Papunya in the Northern Territory. Maisie was born in 1977 and is one of the few young female artists at the beginning of what will be a long artistic career.
Maisie is from a family of esteemed artists her older brothers being George Ward Tjungurray, Yala Yala Gibbs and Willy Tjungurrayi. Her brothers were among the first men to paint for the Papunya Tula arts cooperative in the early 1970’s.

Maisie’s artwork is associated with Women’s Ceremony and Law (Tingari cycle). She paints traditional designs depicting sacred women’s sites and women performing sacred women’s ceremonies in the rockhole and soakage water site of Marrapinti. In the dreamtime, a large group of senior women camped at this rockhole making the nose bones which are worn on ceremonial occasions. The Women later travelled east gathering edible Berries known as Kampuraarpa (Desert Raisin).
