Mabel Juli, bush name Wiringgoon, is a respected elder and senior artist in Warmun in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. She was born circa 1933 at Five Mile, near Moola Bulla Station in the east Kimberley and was taken as a baby to Springvale station, her mother's country. She started work on the station as a little girl, and as a young woman moved to Bedford Downs and Bow River stations for work.

Mabel started painting in the 1980s at the same time as other well known Warmun artists Queenie McKenzie and Madigan Thomas. The women watched Rover Thomas painting and one day he said to them "you try yourself - you might make good painting yourself". Mabel says "I started thinking about my country, I give it a try".

Mabel is an innovative artist who has been short-listed for a number of important awards, including the Australian Heritage Commission Art Award in 1994. She paints the dreaming stories of her country Darrajayn, which is covered largely by Springvale Station, and her subjects and themes mainly concern women. They also include: Karrngin and Wardul Dreaming- Moon and Star Dreaming, Goondarrnin Dreaming- Fish Dreaming, Goolarbool Ngarrangkarni- Snake Dreaming, Kurranda Ngarrangkarni- Brolga Dreamimg, Jiljingarnany and Jirrkany- Hills and plains kangaroo dreaming.
