Nora Wompi was born circa 1940. Nora grew up in the desert, primarily north and east of Punmu and Kunawarritji communities. When she was young, her parents often went hunting and left her in the care of her older brother. She stayed with her family until she was able to hunt for herself, but eventually decided that she, like many of her relatives, would leave the desert.

Nora Wompi travelled north through Kulikutjara before reaching Billiluna. She lived at Balgo and surrounding communities before returning to Kunawarritji to be with her close relatives.

Nora Wompi is a prolific painter and evocative storyteller, with deep knowledge about the country surrounding her home at Kunawarritji.
Nora Wompi has participated in a number of exhibitions around Australia and her paintings were included in the Canning Stock Route Exhibition held at the National Museum of Australia in 2011.
