Yakari Napaltjarri

b. 1950

Yakari is the widow of Simon Tjakamarra who painted for Papunya Tula Artists from the late 1970s until his death in 1990. She lives and paints in the Kiwirrkura Community, although she often travels to Kintore as well as communities further west such as Punmu and Jigalong in Western Australia. Yakari completed her first paintings for Papunya Tula Artists in 1996 after starting as a group with the other Kiwirrkura women.
