Margaret Lewis Napangardi was born in 1952 in the northwest of Australia, on Mount Doreen Station. Her parents and her deceased sisters are renowned aboriginal artists. She grew up in the Bush besides her family, who passed on to her an invaluable cultural background. Before moving to Yuendumu, she had never seen a white person before. At first she started practicing Batik, a technique of printing on fabric and it was not until 1980 that she started painting. Margaret Lewis Napangardi addresses several subjects in an instictive way. She paints with her own unique style, difficult to attach to one specific style. She uses mostly vivid colors to paint, which allows her to tell the stories of the aborigines, specially from women. She has participated in several exhibitions since a young age.
