Artwork Story

Peggy Napangardi Jones was born at Phillip Creek Station in 1951. The artist has fond memories of traveling through the harsh rocky lands of northern central Australia with her family, when they walked to Brunchilly Station to find work. Her lifelong experience of the bush and strong cultural links to her country are her inspiration to paint.

Peggy Jones has mounted ten solo shows and approximately 50 group shows nationally since 1999 and has been selected in the Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award four times.
