Louise was born at Stirling Station. She was educated at Yirrara College, Alice Springs. When she returned to Stirling Station she worked with the Community Development Program. She started painting in 1981 after being taught by her Aunties Gloria and Kathleen Petyarre, well known Aboriginal artists.

Louise moved to Darwin in 1995. She's studied at Nungalinya College and has a Diploma of Fine Arts from the Northern Territory University. Louise' work "Paintings" has been exhibited in Darwin and Sydney.

This painting depicts leaves of a special plant that are used for medical purposes. The leaves are boiled to extract resin and kangaroo fat is mixed through creating a paste that can be stored in the bush for extended periods. The medicine is used to heal cuts, bites, burns, rashes and also acts as an insect repellant.
