Lorna was born near the Granites Mine area of the Tanami Desert around 1925 but grew up in Yuendumu.

Her mother’s country was Yumurrpa, near the Granites in the Tanami Desert. This is where the Yarla (Yam or Big Bush Potato) Dreaming track begins on its travels north toward Lajamanu. Her father’s country was Wapurtali, home of the little bush potato. Her Dreamings included Wapirti and Marlujarra entitling her to paint the sweet potato, little white flower, bush potato, bush yam, caterpillar, wallaby tucker, and certain men’s stories including boomerang.

Her work is held in major public and private collections within Australia and overseas.
