This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

After originally learning her trade while doing the background dotting on Yala Yala's works, Ningura took up painting in her own right following the 1996 Kintore Women's Painting Project.  Her main subjects and themes are travels of her female ancestors, the sites they passed and the bush tucker they collected
She had her first solo exhibition with William Mora Aboriginal Art in 2000 and participated in the Kintore Women's Painting for the Papunya Tula retrospective at the Art Gallery of NSW.

She was chosen as the sole female desert artist to paint the ceiling of the acclaimed Musee du quai Branly in Paris. As well as at the Musee du quai Branly, Ningura is represented in major public galleries both nationally and internationally.

Her work is characterised by a strong dynamism and rich linear design-compositions, created with heavy layers of acrylic paint.
