2024 Revealed Exhibition: New and Emerging WA Aboriginal Artists

Mildred Minggi Mungulu


1957, Derby

Lives and works

Mowanjum Community

Mildred was born at Derby in the old Native Hospital (Numbala Nunga) and spent her 22 years at Mowanjum (“old site”) on the Derby Highway. This was where Mildred watched her father Alan Mungulu (dec) make didgeridoos and boomerangs at home. “When I was there I would see him do them.” It was being near the traditional crafting of these objects that created a connection to the traditional culture which assisted Mildred’s own craft as a painter. In 1979 the community was moved to a new site on the Gibb River Road and this is where Mildred now resides. Mildred started her career as an exhibiting artist in 1998 and belongs to one of the most established traditional families in Mowanjum. Mildred has exhibited in Sydney, Perth, Derby, Broome and Woodford, Queensland.
