Lynette Nampijinpa Granites was born in 1945 at Mt Doreen Station. Mt Doreen Station is an extensive cattle breeding station about 55 km west of Yuendumu, an Aboriginal community 290 km north-west of Alice Springs in the NT of Australia. When Lynette was a little girl she grew up and was educated at the Baptist Mission in Yuendumu. She married first her promised husband and had two children and later married her second husband Harry Nelson, a Warlpiri elder and former Yuendumu Council President.

Lynette Granites commenced her painting career in the 80’s for the Warlukurlangu Artists community in Yuendumu She paints her father’s and grandfather’s Jukurrpa stories, Dreamings which relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. 

The country associated with this painting is Mina Mina, a place West of Yuendumu, significant to Napanangka women who are the custodians of the Dreaming that created the area.

The Dreaming describes the journey of a group of selected women who travelled East gathering bush food and performing ceremonies. Along the way the women collected snake vine which is a vine sacred to Napanangka women and has many uses. It is used as a ceremonial wrap, as a strap to carry Coolamon dish laden with bush tucker and as a tourniquet for headaches.
