Linda Syddick Napaltjarri
Linda is the daughter of Wanala Nangala and Rintja Tjungurrayi. Linda's paintings are inspired by both her traditional nomadic life in the desert and the Dreaming of her father and stepfather. Linda's father was Rintje Tjungurrayi. Rintje was killed by a revenge spearing party in accordance with customary Law when Linda was about eighteen months old; her stepfather, artist Lungkata Shorty Tjungurrayi, subsequently brought her up. Before Lungkata died in 1985, he instructed Linda to carry on his work and paint his Dreaming. And in 1986 her two Uncles Uta Uta Tjangala and Nosepeg Tjupurrula taught Linda the art of painting.
