Walangkura was born in 1946 at Tjiturulnga, west of Walungurru (Kintore) in the far west of the Northern Territory. Her family was among a group of Pintupi people who made their way to the Ikuntji settlement (Haasts Bluff) in 1956. They walked hundreds of kilometres from west of the salt lake of Karrkurutinjinya (Lake Macdonald) to gain access to the food and water at the settlement. The family returned to their home country community of Walungurru (Kintore) in 1981. Her parents Inyuwa Nampitjinpa and Tutuma Tjapangati, her sister Pirrmangka Napanangka and husband Uta Uta Tjangala were also artists. She now lives at Kiwirkurra with her husband and fellow artist Johnny Yungut Tjupurrula.

Walangkura began her artistic career in 1995 by participating in the collaborative canvas project 'Minyma Tjukurrpa' between the Kintore and Haasts Bluff communities. She subsequently joined and began painting with Papunya Tula Artists in 1996.

Walangkura has exhibited extensively, including in the landmark show "Papunya Tula: Genesis and Genius" held in 2000 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.
