Brenda Mingen Ningarmara

Waringarri Arts

“I was born in Kununurra. I now have five children. I watch the old people painting – that’s how I got started. It teaches me about Country. I am ready to take over the stories of my mother.  I learnt from her to tell her stories and pass them on to my children and grandchildren.”

Brenda is a dedicated artist and her arts practice includes ochre painting and textiles.  She has worked at the art centre as a Miriwoong Tour Guide and has been a Director on the Waringarri Arts’ Board.
