Born at Mt. Ellen of Anmatyerre / Warlpiri descent of Mt. Wedge and Mt. Ellen (Kerrinyarra) county, Maureen is one of the 9 children of Lena Nampajinpa.


Maureen was educated at Yuendumu Settlement and latter returned to Mt. Allen and worked as a teacher's aid.

The demand for her artwork has steadily increased over the years and she has now emerged as a painter in her own right.
