Lloyd Shepherd was born near Warmala in 1968 and paints out of the Warlayirti Arts Center in Balgo Hills, Western Australia. Like some his contemporaries, such as Hansen Pye, Philomena Baadjo, Monica Njamme, and others, Lloyd is one of a number of especially exciting young artists who are producing powerful and highly-collectible paintings. Lloyd paints Warrakurna, country of his father and grandfather, located far south of Balgo. The Dreamings he paints are rich in detail and respect for the traditions of his ancestors.
