Felicity paints the story of water dreaming called Puyurru or Soakage based on the large soakage sites and clay pans in her country. Felicity tells us these soakage sites are mostly dry and when custodians of the land visit the sacred waterhole and perform their ceremonial dance, the water rises through its centre, providing for the Warlpiri people the most important element of life.

Felicity, born in 1965 is a talented artist from Yuendumu, 293km northwest of Alice Springs. Felicity is the daughter of internationally acclaimed artist Shorty Robertson Jangala.
