Biography

Cynthia is closely connected to two important families of painters in Balgo; she is the daughter of Ningie Nanala and Tjumpo Tjapangangka (deceased), and she is married to Manuel Mudjedell, a son of Mati (Bridget) Mudjedell (deceased). Paintings done by Cynthia are often well finished and rich in strong fields of colour with deeply contrasting line work. They have an engaging appeal considering that the artist is still very much in a developmental stage of her career.
