Pansy was born at Haasts Bluff in the late 1940's. She never went to school as she would always run away to go swimming and be with the horses on the Haasts Bluff Mission instead. In 1960, Pansy lived at Papunya and observed many artists painting, in particular Johnny Warrangkula. She developed her own style of painting and rather than work on paintings with the older men, Pansy began working for herself in the early 70's. Pansy paints the Desert Raisin story, this dreaming belongs to her mother who is from Ilypilli country. The desert raisin (Kampuralpa) is a seed fruit from which the women make a dough which is then eaten, and not cooked. She also paints Kungka Kutjarra (two women) Travelling - the site is Ilypilli and surrounding country. The underlining symbols represent countryside and body paint, with women travelling and having ceremonies along the journey. Opther painting themes include the Hail Dreaming of Water Dreaming. Her work is held in: the Holmes a Court collection, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Queensland Art Gallery and Museums and Art Galleries of the Northern Territory
