Mona Chuguna was the wife of noted artist Peter Skipper. She painted at Mangkaya, Fitzroy Crossing, W.A. and was a leading senior figure of that community. The painting illustrates the landscape of the country where the artist and her family lived. The central circular image is that of a waterhole surrounded by the lush environs she walked by as a young person. The artist's pallet generally employs bright greens, blues and reds illustrating the flora and fauna of that area.

Mona Chuguna is widely collected and has exhibited in Australia and internationally.
