Ningura began painting by working at her husband’s direction, dotting the background of his works, and then in her own right following the 1996 Kintore Women's Painting Project. She had her first solo exhibition in 2000 and participated in the prestigious Kintore Women's Painting for the Papunya Tula retrospective at the Art Gallery of NSW.
Ningura's status as a premier artist was cemented when she was chosen as the sole female desert artist among eight artists to have their work incorporated into the architecture of the acclaimed Musee du quai Branly in Paris which opened in 2006. The Museum features Ningura’s women’s story on the ceiling of the first floor.In 2003 Ningura was one of five artists to have her artwork featured on a range of Australia Post international stamps.
