Joy Pitjara was born in 1962 in Boundary Bore, Utopia.

She is the daughter of well known artist Glory Ngarla (deceased) and sister to the famous Anna Price Petyarre. 

Born into a famous artist family, Joy learned batik from an early age by her mother and later started painting on canvas with acrylic paints. 

Using a fine dotting technique with subtle shades of colour, Joy depicts the stories such as the Bush Tobacco Plant, Bush Plum and Yam Dreamings.
