Along with sister Tjunkiya and her mother Mitjili Napurrula, Wintjiya participated in the camp in 1994 that initiated painting amongst the Pintupi women. Her paintings generally depict designs associated with the rockhole site of Umari, situated in sandhill country, east of Mt. Webb in Western Australia.

 

This painting depicts designs associcated with the travels of a group of women from the rockhole site of Watanuma, north-west of the Kintore Community. The women passed through the rockhole site of Umari and continued east to Pinari, north of Kintore. The 'U' Shapes represent the women and the oblong shape represent the wooden carrying bowl.
