Pansy close contact with Non-Aboriginal Australians has progressed her in her search for new rhythms and frontiers yet she always remains firm within the confines of Aboriginal traditions. Pansy Napangardi began working  from 1960 and as an independent artist working for herself since the early 70's. The resources of Papunya Tula Artists at this time were exclusively the province of the senior initiated men who began the painting enterprise.

Pansy independently sold her works in Alice Springs. She worked in this manner for about five years followed by a long break. In 1983 she resumed painting, working for Papunya Tula Artists. Pansy Napangardi paintings are is in high demand and she is represented in major public collections throughout the world.

During the late 80's Pansy Napangardi emerged as Papunya Tula's foremost women artist. Her work was included in the company's display at the 1988 Brisbane Expo and also featured on the cover of The Inspired Dream catalogue of a major survey of Aboriginal Art shown at the same time at the Queensland Art Gallery.

Pansy has had number of solo exhibitions. The first one was at the Sydney Opera House in September 1988 promoted by the Centre for Aboriginal Artists (for whom she still paints for occasionally). The second showing occurred at the Gallery Gabrielle Pizzi in Melbourne in May 1989 promoted by Papunya Tula Artists.

In 1989 Pansy Napangardi won the sixth National Aboriginal Art Award. She showed again at the Gallery Gabrielle Pizzi in late 1991 and also in Brisbane with EUNICE Napangardi in early 1992. Her work has appeared in several major surveys of Aboriginal art, including 'Mythscapes' at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1989 and 'Karnta', a show of Aboriginal women's work at the Art Gallery of NSW in 1991.

Pansy Napangardi is considered one of the foremost Australian artists. Pansy is a major painter in what is today known as the Papunya Tula movement. Although it has been said that Aboriginal women have only been painting since the 1980's, Pansy states that she, like her sister Eunice Napangardi (c1950-2005), commenced painting earlier.

Pansy Napangardi  (a Luritja/Warlpiri decent) was born at Haasts Bluff in the late 1940 during the early years of mission settlement and was moved with the settlement to Papunya in the early 1960s. She is from the Warlpiri language group. Pansy is one of the rare women associated with Papunya Tula who did not serve an apprenticeship with the men. She sold her works independently in Alice Springs at first, but during the 1980s she became the pre-eminent woman painter at Papunya Tula, winning the National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award (NATSIAA) in 1989. She is associated with the Jukurrpa group of women artists in Alice Springs where she lives today.

From 1960 Pansy lived in Papunya where she observed older artists like Johnny WARANGKULA and KAAPA Tjampitjinpa. Pansy Napangardi began recording her Dreaming in the early 1970's at the start of the Papunya Art Movement. By observing Johnny Warangkula and Kaapa, two established artists, Pansy's developed her own unique style.

Pansy Napangardi began working for herself from the early 70's. Pansy independently sold her works in Alice Springs and in 1983 she resumed painting, working for Papunya Tula Artists. During the late 80's Pansy Napangardi emerged as Papunya Tula's foremost women artist. Her work was included in the company's display at the 1988 Brisbane Expo and also featured on the cover of The Inspired Dream catalogue of a major survey of Aboriginal Art shown at the same time at the Queensland Art Gallery.

The second showing occurred at the Gallery Gabrielle Pizzi in Melbourne in May 1989 promoted by Papunya Tula Artists.

Pansy Napangardi work was seen at the 1988 Brisbane expo as well as the cover of 'The Inspired Dream', which was published at the same time. She has had several solo exhibitions, one of them at the Sydney Opera House, followed by the Gallery Gabrille Pizzi. Her work is featured in many group exhibitions and is represented in collections around the world including Richard Kelton Foundation collection, 'Mythscapes' at the National Gallery Canberra and the 'Karnta' exhibition at the New South Wales Art Gallery. Pansy showed again at the Gallery Gabrielle Pizzi in late 1991 and also in Brisbane with EUNICE Napangardi in early 1992.

Pansy Napangardi work Style
Pansy's work gives voice to her traditional beliefs and symbolizes a triumphal cultural statement by the once near defeated people of the Central Australian Desert. Her paintings are remarkable with their use of colour. Blues, greens and pinks create a spiritual vigor and nervous energy that excite the eye. They are refreshing with their striking vitality and exploring diversity.

Pansy Napangardi paintings often represent the fertility and glory of her traditional land, making a statement about the relationship of the her people and the land. Pansy is an artist who constantly experiments and surprises. Her close contact with Non-Aboriginal Australians has progressed her in her search for new rhythms and frontiers yet she always remains firm within the confines of Aboriginal traditions.

Pansy Napangardi has a son and four other adopted children, the youngest of whom she now lives with in Alice Springs. Pansy attends literacy classes at IAD with many of the other women from the Tjukurrpa painting group. Her sister Alice Napangardi is married to artist Dinny NOLAN and lives in Papunya. Her younger brother BROGAS TJAPANGATI also paints for the Papunya Tula Artists and the Aboriginal Desert Art Gallery.

Pansy father and grandfather are Warlpiri tribesmen and were born at Pikilyi (Vaughan Springs), west of Papunya. Pansy paints; Bush Banana, Water Snake, Seven Sisters, Hail, Desert Raisin and Two Women, Kangaroo, Cockatoo, Bush Mangoes and Willy Wagtail. Her mother who was Luritja was born at the site of Illpili. Pansy mother's cousin taught Pansy the Dreamings from her mother's side of the family. Napangarti’s grandparents first showed her how to depict her inherited stories 'Dreamings' by drawing them in the sand. Napangarti was born in Haast Bluff in central Australia. She bases her work on the traditional Dreamings handed down through her family. Unlike other aboriginal women artists, Napangarti did not serve an apprenticeship by working on the paintings of her male relatives. Instead, she forged her own distinctive style in the 1970s and is now represented in major collections across the world. Pansy recalls her grandmother and grandfather telling her stories about her Dreamings and also showing her how to depict them by drawing them in the sand. She practiced on paper and later used her designs to do collages comprised of glue and the 'ininti' seeds from which the women usually made necklaces.

Warlpiri artist, Pansy Napangardi moved to Alice Springs in 1989. "When I was a young girl we always travelled around a lot. We'd go to a swimming hole, hunting or gathering bush tucker. Later on I saw my uncle painting and I asked him, 'Can you tell me my mother's dreaming? I want to put them down.' " They told her the stories and showed her in the sand how to depict them. She practised on paper and later used her designs to do collages made up with the 'ininti' seeds from which the women used for making jewellery. As she gained experience in this form, she moved into her forte', acrylic on canvas. Since that time Pansy's paintings have inspired world acclaim.
