Yindjibarndi elder and founding member of one of the region’s most recognized art groups,Bujee Nhoorr Pu, Maudie is part of the backbone of Pilbara Aboriginal art. Born in Hooley Creek via Wittenoom, and raised in the coastal town of Roebourne, Maudie has witnessed and helped guide her community through dramatic lifestyle changes.

Maudie’s art relates to the landscapes of the Yindjibarndi and Ngarluma country of the Pilbara, paying specific attention to the flora of the area, often depicting plants or flowers that have medicinal or ceremonial purpose. Her work often uses simplicity to communicate elements of the Yindjibarndi country. Maudie was selected to visit Italy as part of the ‘Antica Terra Pulsante’ Pilbara exhibition in Florence in 2006. In 2007 Maudie moved to the up and coming art group Yinjaa-Barni Art. She brings to the group her knowledge in culture and seven year experience in painting.

Since being with Yinjaa-Barni Art she has been an inspiration to the younger members watching how she uses her colours and puts her designs to canvas. Her work is very popular and is sought after.
