Daisy was born on Coniston Station She had a traditional upbringing, travelling around the country where she learnt traditional indigenous skills and lore. She now lives in Yuelamu, a community located on the site of the old Mount Allan Pastoral lease and situated approximately 300 km north west of Alice Springs on the Tanami Track.

This painting depicts Nakamarra and Napurrurla women hunting for bush foods. Women traditionally dug for these foods using wooden ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks). The end of the digging sticks were charred and ground on a stone surface to create a bevelled edge. Today many Warlpiri women use crowbars (also called ‘karlangu’) to dig for bush foods. Collected bush foods are traditionally carried in ‘parraja’ (coolamons), which can be carried with a strap made from the ‘ngalyipi’ (snake vine).
