Winnie Nakamarra continues to recieve praise for her captivating works. 

Nakamarra was born in 1961 in Alice Springs, and was the fourth child of renowned Western Desert painter Makinti Napanangka. Her family moved to Kintore in the early 1980s, recently after it had been established. 

 

Much of Nakamarra's work recalls the sacred rockhole site of Lupulnga in Western Australia. Her work also explores the stories of Aboriginal lore, related with the Peewee bird. both of these symbols may be frequently identified within her paintings. Nakamarra also commonly paints scenes of womens' ceremonies, and body painting designs.
