Mavis was born at New Haven. She is the sister of Ronnie Tjampitjinpa and Smithy Zimran Tjampitjinpa. Her sisters Yuyuya Nampitjinpa and Gina Nampitjinpa are from the same birth mother and father (Tjangala). She moved to Haasts Bluff as a teenager with her mother. When she married she moved to Mt Liebig with her husband and began to paint at the art centre there. Mavis returned to Haasts Bluff at the death of her husband, later moving to Papunya. Mavis likes to paint the Ceremonial Dancing of ladies at Mt Liebig, and represents their body painting designs. She also paints the story given to her by her grandfather of Kalipinpa, the Water Dreaming, which comes from her mother’s side.

Ikuntji is situated within the spectacular West MacDonnell Ranges. The community is surrounded on the northern side be Ulumparu, known as Mount Edward, and Anyali, know as Mount William, and in the south by the stunning Mereenie Bluff. To the west red sand hills and stands of desert oak trees, known locally as “kurrkara watiya”, dominate the landscape. The mountains change their colours depending on the light of the day and the rain; some highlights at dusk and dawn may only last a few seconds.

Digitally printed on a 140GSM Certified 100% organic cotton, this raw tee features a relaxed crew neck, long body, raw sleeves and hem. The white tee is a men’s size large, but is a flattering oversized cut for women also.
