Josephine was born circa 1950 and grew up in country north of Jupiter Well in Western Australia. Her first contact with European people was with cattlemen in the same area, who provided her family with meat. Josephine lived in Balgo before moving to the Kiwirrkura community with her husband Charlie Wallabi Tjungurrayi. In 1999 Josephine contributed to the Kiwirrkura women’s painting as part of the Western Desert Dialysis Appeal.
