I was born in Darwin, raised in Yirrkala and I attend Yirrkala School. I have a daughter named Amina who is five years old. I grew up watching my dad painting. My dad is W. Wanambi, he was also an artist with Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka. I have learned different types of artwork from him. Because I grew up with my father, I want to be a role model for my daughter.
