Lorna Ward Napanangka was born at Papunya in the early 1960s and is the daughter of famous artist, Timmy Payungka Tjapangardi, one of the first generation Papunya Tula artists, and Margaret Nampitjinpa, originally from the Umari area. Lorna began painting when she was living at Kintore in 1996 and she often paints the site of Marrapinti.

Lorna Ward Napanangka employs a variety of styles in her artwork and moves freely between them as she paints her canvases. Her fine and rhythmic work evokes styles as diverse as the severe Western Desert formalism of Anatjari Tjakamarra and the finely gridded patterns of the Tiwi islands. Her technique of fine dotting in white onto a plain black or brown background has been a strong influence on other Pintupi women painters. This enormous versatility and collectability is recognised by collectors worldwide.

Lorna Ward Napanangka has been exhibiting her work since 2000 in Australia and overseas, with solo shows in 2001 and 2004. She was a finalist in the 2002 NATSIAA, one of the most prestigious Australian art prizes. Lorna had four sons and two daughters: Francis, Dinny, Renee, Noel,Maureen and Caroline. Dinny Ward Tjakamarra and Caroline Nakamarra began painting for Papunya Tula in 2003. Aboriginal art status – Highly regarded artist.
