Wintjiya Napaltjarri

b. 1930, Malparingya, Central Australia

Wintjiya was born at Malparingya, north-west of the Kintore Community, circa 1930, and she is the second wife of Turkey Tolson’s farther. She later moved to Haasts Bluff with her husband and then to the Papunya Community when it was established. She participated in the Kintore/Haasts Bluff joint project which was the beginning of her career, but now paints for Papunya Tula. In 1999 Wintjiya contributed to the Kintore women’s painting as part of the Western Desert Dialysis Appeal.
