Mildred Nyunkiya Lyons



Lives and works

Papulankutja | Blackstone

Mildred was born in Warburton and moved around the Ngaanyatjarra lands growing up. She went to school in Warburton and Jameson before moving to Blackstone. When Mildred was young, she would go walking with the other girls out bush, looking for honey ants and yellow berries. She loved being out bush, just walking around her Country from Kaltukatjara (Docker River) to Blackstone. Mildred began painting after spending time in the Papulankutja Arts Centre as an arts worker, helping to take photos of paintings and keep the art centre clean when she was younger.
