Biography

Ann Frances was born at Tjalyuwang, one of the remote mission sites which was established before that of the Catholic mission at Wirrimanu (Balgo). She is the eldest daughter of a senior Law man and recognised artist Brandy Tjungurrayi.

When Ann Frances was young she went to the local school at Balgo Hills and she also attended high school in Broome. Her family moved between Balgo and Christmas Creek and then in the 1996 they moved to Kiwirrkurra where they stayed until the community was flooded and evacuated in 2001. Ann Frances now lives in Balgo with her husband and two sons. She started painting in the mid-1990s and paints the Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) stories passed on to her from her mother and father.
