Mitjili grew up in Papunya and moved to Haasts Bluff with her late husband Long Tom Tjapanangka in the late 1980?s during the outstation movement. The couple started painting at Ikuntji in 1992 with the opening of Ikuntji Women?s Centre, both contributing significantly to the emerging art movement there. She gained an international following after winning the Alice Springs Art Prize in 1999.
The Watiya Tjuta in Mitjili?s paintings is her father?s Tjukurrpa (dreaming) in Ilyingaungau country (Gibson Desert). This was passed down to her by her mother; she remembers ??After I got married, my mother taught me my father?s Tjukurrpa in the sand, that?s what I?m painting on the canvas?, a women?s interpretation.
Mitjili lived at an outstation close to Papunya where she continued to paint in her later years, along side her family and fellow artists such as Ann Lane nee Dixon. Mitjili passed away in April 2019.
