Father was Djutjadjutja. She resides and works at her Djapu clan homeland of Wandawuy which is an inland community of ten houses about 2 and a half hours South West of Yirrkala. The road becomes inaccessible during the Wet season and there is no mains power or TV/radio reception. She has a number of sons from her marriage to an older Dhalwaŋu clan elder now deceased. All of these surviving sons are artists.
