Aileen Cheinmora was born in Wyndham Hospital, WA in 1979. She has lived in Kalumburu all her life. Kalumburu is an Aboriginal community set deep in the Wandjina spirit country, situated on the banks of the King Edward River and is the furthermost permanent settlement along the remote Kimberley coast in the north of Western Australia.

Aileen’s mother Maureen is from Bidyadanga community (180km south of Broome) and her father Alfred is from Kalumburu. Aileen went to school at Kalumburu and after finishing, became a teacher’s assistant at the school which she still does today. Aileen has one child, a little boy, Cassius.
Aileen was encouraged by friends and family to start painting in 2018 after years of watching and learning from her talented relatives such as Lily Karadada and Kevin Waina. She started by sketching and now paints the Wandjina and Gwion Gwion rock art which is abundant in her region on canvas.

Aileen is a naturally talented artist with a wonderful career ahead of her.

This is how the Wandjina figures look on the rocks, the caves and the escarpments in my country (Mitchell Plateau, Far North Kimberley region). My people believe the Wandjina controls the seasons and makes sure there is enough water for everyone. The Wandjina sends down the rain for animals and humans.

Aileen has included the food sources of her area in this artwork, such as turtle and goanna.
