Portrait of Nyangapa Nora Nangapa. - click to view larger image

born about 1916, Manyjilyjarra language group, Karimarra skin group, Kunawarritji community, Martumili Artists

I was born near Lipuru. We went from Lipuru to Wajaparni and Kilykily. They looked after me there as I grew. I went east ... and kept on going towards Balgo, travelling with the drovers all the way.

Nyangapa lives at Kunawarritji and travels regularly between Kunawarritji and Balgo.

She paints for both Martumili and Warlayirti Artists, and many younger artists describe having learned to paint by watching her example.
