Biography

Winifred was born and raised at the new Balgo Mission (current site of Balgo community). She is the daughter of renowned Warlayirti artists Ningie Nanala and Tjumpo Tjapanangka (deceased). She has lived across the Kimberley region, spending time with her family between Mulan and Balgo communities. Winifred has four daughters, one son, and many many grandchildren. 

Winifred has spent many years learning painting techniques, and the countries of her mother and father. She expertly combines her mother’s densely applied dotting with her father’s strong form.
