Before Melissa was born her mother heard a knocking on the door. When she opened it and looked outside no one was there. Her father was sleeping at the time and when he woke up he told Melissa's mother that he had dreamed of an animal spirit. That animal spirit was Melissa's totem and that is how her parents knew that she was inside her mother. Melissa participated in a print workshop held in Milingimbi with printmaker Theo Tremblay which accommodated students between the ages of 12 and 17 years. These students were asked to depict family scenes.

Barney's artworks possess a wonderful subtlety, characterised by series of roundels that seem to float in a maze of sinuous lines. Such iconography is reminiscent of ceremonial body designs and traditional ground drawings. The most common subject depicted in Barney’s paintings is that of the Tingari Cycle. Since events associated with the Tingari Cycle are of a secret and sacred nature few details are given. These legends form part of the teachings of the post-initiatory youths today, as well as providing explanations for contemporary customs.

Julie depicts her Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming), which is associated with her father’s traditional country of Pirlinyanu, a rocky outcrop in the Tanami Desert, west of Yuendumu and towards the WA border. Using an aerial perspective along with a more recently established and distinctive monochromatic palette, Julie’s paintings have become works of extraordinary optical brilliance as she alternates the size of dots throughout her work as well as building up specific shapes or reference points often by repeated overdotting.
