Mary was born near Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay) circa 1955. Her family lived in the vicinity of Lappi Lappi, at the northern area of Lake Mackay, until they walked into Mt. Doreen cattle station west of Yuendumu when Mary was approximately ten years old. When the station owner died the family moved to Yuendumu where she married, later moving further west to Nyirrpi and giving birth to two boys. After her husband passed away Mary remarried the well-known Papunya Tula artist Ronnie Tjampitjinpa in Kintore where she now lives and paints.
