Nancy Nodea was born around 1949 at Buffalo Hole, in the East Kimberley, on Texas Downs cattle station. She grew up with members of her community who ultimately became famous artists, such as Queenie McKenzie, Hector Jandanay and George Mung Mung. Nancy moved to the Warmun Community several years ago and lives there today with her children and grandchildren. She has a brother, Churchill Cann who is an accomplished artist. She was always interested in art but did not begin painting until 1996, when she attended the Art Centre at Warmun where she was reunited with Queenie, Hector and also Rover Thomas, Freddie Timms and Jack Britten. From these world-class artists she developed her skills in ochre painting. She has specialized in meticulous, minimal representations of her country on Texas Downs using Warmun's exqusite ochre palette.
