Michelle Woody is a strong Tiwi culture woman and artist whose distinct painting style is becoming increasingly recognised on a national level. Her works are based on the stories of Japarra the moon man and Japalinga the stars, bush food and hunting. She is slowly developing her own Jilamara designs to share these stories in new ways. She likes to paint Tiwi bush medicine and winga (the sea) surrounding Milikapiti.

In 2015, NORTH began as a mechanism to make viable the trade of hand-screen printed textiles from remote art centres to the interior design market. Through collaboration and being guided by the excitement and hopes of artists they were working with, NORTH evolved into a fashion label.
