Maisie Nungarrayi Ward was born in 1975 in Papunya, located 168km south east of Nyirripi. and roughly 240km northwest of Alice Springs. She went to Kintore School before going to Yirara College, an Aboriginal boarding college in Alice Springs. When she finished school, she returned home to look after her little sisters.

She paints both Women’s Ceremony and her father’s Kurrkara Jukurrpa (Desert Oak Dreaming), stories passed down over thousands of years and related to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. “When I do that painting . . . like it makes me feel happy.”

She lives in Nyirripi with her partner Donald Brown. When she is not painting she likes to play sport.

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).
