Lisa Mills lives a very traditional aboriginal life in the Utopia Region, her home land. Born at MacDonnell Downs Station, just north of Irrwelty, Lisa grew up between both Irrwelty and Amperlatwaty (further north) where she went to Amperlatwaty school. Now Lisa lives with her husband Damien Petrick (whose mother is well known artist Josie Petrick) and daughter Shakira where they love to collect sugar bag and other bush tuckers.

Lisa began painting in July 2006, where her first works were for Mbantua Gallery.
