Born in Haast Bluff, Lily Kelly commenced painting in 1986 for Pupunya Tula Artists. She depicts the stories from the Haasts Bluff and Kunajarrayi (Mt Nicker) area and now paints very innovative interpretations of her traditional country for Watiyawanu Artists of Yamunturrngu. Her husband, Norman Kelly Tjampitjinpa is also an artist but one who now paints only occasionally.
