Pauline was born in Alice Springs hospital and grew up in Yuendumu an Aboriginal settlement located 290 kms north west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia.  She has been painting with the Warlukurlangu Artists since 1999.

Pauline paints her mother’s Jukurrpa stories, Dreamings which relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. These stories were passed down to her by her mother and her mother’s mother before them for millennia. Pauline loves spending time visiting the country around Yuendumu and telling her kids the stories of this land. When she is painting she sometimes paints by herself and sometimes with her family. When Pauline is not working, looking after children or painting she likes to go hunting for bush tucker.
