Linda and her family walked out of the desert in the 1940‘s to Haasts Bluff where she was educated by Lutheran Missionaries.

In conjunction with with the education she has received from original Papunya movement artists, Uta Uta Tjungala, Nosepeg Tjapurrula and Shorty Langkata Tjungarrayi, Linda has formed a distinctive unique style that combines her Christian and Aboriginal spiritual beliefs.

Her Dreamings include Tingari Dreamings, her father's Emu story & mother‘s Snake story which depict both mythological stories & actual events of traditional life in the desert.

One style in particular that Linda is known for painting depicts a windmill, which her family came upon at the time they walked out of the desert, they believed it was some kind of monster.
