Biography

Winifred Burrungu Richards lives in Warburton, WA. When she visits Yuendumu, a remote aboriginal community 290 km north west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory she paints for Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre. Winifred often travels to Yuendumu to visit family and friends. She paints Yanjirilpirri or Napaljarri-Warnu Jukurrpa (Star or Seven Sisters Dreaming), a night sky that she shares in both Warburton and Yuendumu. She also paints a portion of the Tingari Cycle, a very important collection of Dreaming narratives from the Western Desert region.
