Jilly was born at Old MacDonald Downs Station in the northern reaches of the Utopia region, and spent many years growing up in that area. She attended Soapy Bore School just south as well as Yirrara College in Alice Springs, some 250km away from her home. Jilly continues to live in the Utopia region with her extended family.

Description

Jilly is painting the story of small earthworms found in her country. Pronounced Iy-lenky-la in Jilly's language, this creature is represented by the concentric circle designs. She, Iy-lenky-la, is asleep in the centre and then unwinds herself around and around. Iy-lenky-la is special to Jilly as the story belongs to the women of her country, Arawerre.
