Molly Jugadai was born circa 1954 at Haasts Bluff, Northern Territory, eldest daughter of artists Narputta Nangala and Timmy Jugadai Tjungurrayi. Maluya was born under a Ngalta tree about three kilometres west of the existing Haasts Bluff community in 1954, shortly after the establishment of the mission community.
She had a younger sister, artist Daisy Jugadai Napaltjarri who died in 2008.
Molly played a significant role in the establishment of the Ikuntji Artists Aboriginal Corporation, set up in the mid-1990s and has been a staunch supporter and practising artist at the studio ever since.
A Napaltjarri skin woman, Maluya in her first decade of artistry initially painted the story of the "Napaltjarri Children (or Sisters)" who, came in space ships to earth thousands of years ago. They represent the first people on earth. The children travel the country every night seeking dew and mungari amid the vegetation of the desert.
