Yinapura is a Telstra award winning artist, daughter of founding Papunya Tula artist Anatjari Tjampitjinpa and sister of artists Mantua Nangala and Ray James Tjangala.

She paints her traditional land where women gather to conduct ceremonial business.

Her delicate compositions reflect an intuitive sense for space and rhythm. Her talent is enabling her to become recognised as a highly acclaimed artist. In addition to winning the Telstra award in 2009, Yinapura received an honourable mention at the 36th Alice Art Prize 2010 and has exhibited in Idaho, USA as a part of the Papunya Tula Art Exhibition of the Western Desert.
