Ingrid began painting in the Arts Centre in Fregon in the mid 1990's, mainly in the walka style. She draws on the rich tradition of aboriginal culture, and connection to country, for the imagery in her paintings. Her work has developed to include the Seven Sisters tjukurpa handed down to her by her father.
