Jemma Unghango was born in Kalumburu in 1961 and has lived there all her life. Her mother and father both worked on nearby stations and moved to Kalumburu when they started a family.

A quietly spoken and shy lady, Jemma has 5 children and has been painting since the mid 1990’s, selling her artworks through the Kalumburu Museum. She has also been heavily involved with painting beautiful artworks for the Kalumburu Catholic Church.

Jemma paints the beautiful Gwion Gwion Rock Art which is abundant in her region.

This is how the Wandjina figures look on the rocks, the caves and the escarpments in my country (Mitchell Plateau, Far North Kimberley region). Here you can find them right beside the Gwion Gwion (Bradshaw) figures. 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.
