Paji Honeychild was born at Kuntumarrajarra in the Great Sandy Desert. She began painting at the Karrayili Adult Education Centre and took part in its first exhibition at the Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute in Adelaide in1991. The recurring theme in her works were Jila (waterholes) at various sites in the Great Sandy Desert.

 

This site is called Nurtu. According to the artist:

'We used to stay here when I was a kid. This was a 'living' water hole (a permanent water source) and we would move from place to place. We never stayed in one place too long.'
