Kay Lindjuwanga is a Kuninjku artist born in 1956.  Lindjuwanga is the daughter of renowned painter Peter Marralwanga. She was taught to paint by her husband and acclaimed artist, John Mawurndjul. Lindjuwanga has often assisted Mawurndjul with his painting. In the early 1990’s, she was  among the first Kuninjku women to paint on bark.  As well as bark paintings, her repertoire includes lorrkon (hollow logs), mimih carvings and etchings. She had her first solo show in 2004 at Aboriginal & Pacific Arts in Sydney and her work was included in the landmark exhibition Crossing Country at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.  In 2004 she won the Telstra Bark Painting Award.

Throughout the last two decades  Lindjuwanga has gained critical acclaim for her work seeing it shown internationally, presented by many galleries such as La Fontaine Centre of Contemporary  Art, Kingdom of Bahrain, Rebecca Hossack Gallery, UK, the African Muse Gallery, France and Bargehouse Gallery, UK

Over the years Lingjuwanga’s work has been presented nationally by William Mora, Annandale Galleries and most recently by Paul Johnston Gallery, Darwin.

Her work is held in a number of public and private collections, including the National Gallery of Victoria, National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of South Australia and the Macquarie Bank Art Collection.
