Kathy Maringka was born in the bush, near Ernabella, in 1954. Her family moved into the mission at Ernabella and she went to school there, before moving to Victory Downs, a cattle station near Ernabella. Kathy worked as a Cultural Tour Guide at Uluru, guiding tourists and cleaning and washing dishes at the tourist camp.

Kathy Maringka returned to Ernabella to marry and had 5 children. In Ernabella, Kathy started work at the art centre and learnt to sew, spin wool and make rugs. Kathy and her family moved to Fregon in the 1970s when it was still a mission outstation. At the Fregon craft room, Kathy learnt batik techniques and painting with acrylics on canvas.

Kathy works mainly from home fitting her centrelink office job during the day. Kathy's commitment to her art is as strong as ever. Sales are mainly to private buyers who seek out her distinctive, vibrant work. At present, her speciality is Tjulpun-tjulpunpa - Desert Wildflowers which she has been inspired to paint after the unusual amount of rain in the desert creating carpets of wildflowers.

Kathy Maringka's work has been exhibited across Australia since 1994.
