‘I was born in Darwin but I grew up in Oenpelli. I went to school in Oenpelli.
I was a little girl about fifteen when I started weaving, my mother taught me. My mother taught me to collect Pandanus and colour, my big sister too. Sometimes I make dilly bags and sometimes baskets. I like weaving and I like teaching the young ones.’

Joy now lives in Jabiru and has lived here since the late 2000s, with her husband John Lemibanda, who is also an artist with Marrawuddi.

As well as fibre work, Joy is also a painter and has been practicing since a teenager. 'I enjoy painting dillybags and baskets, because I like it.'
