Mavis Jugadai was born in the desert west of Kintore into an artistic family – her mother is the internationally recognised artist Narputa Nangala, her father was Timmy Tjungurrayi Jugadai, her older sister is the wonderfully talented and internationally recognised artist, Molly Napaltjarri Jugadai and she is the niece of renowned indigenous artist Willy Tjungurrayi .
Mavis paints in the traditional iconic style and her bold brushwork and strong sense of design feature prominently in all her paintings. Her dreamings centre mainly of bush tucker, her country and women’s seceret ceremony. Mavis’ works have been extensively exhibited and collected by discerning art lovers around the world.
