Elizabeth grew up at Alcoota Station in the Northern Territory Central Desert Region, when she was a teenager she moved to Engawala Community with her family where she still lives today. Elizabeths mother was her biggest influence in life, introducing her to painting at an early age. Elizabeth has developed a unique dot painting style using acrylic on canvas, often showing bush tucker scenes. Elizabeth also paints with acrylic on wood, sometimes using mulga wood which is native to the Central Desert area. She also makes native jewellery often using seeds from the bean tree. Elizabeth is also painting the metal megafauna figures for the Alcoota museum in Alice Springs.
Elizabeth was recognised for her contribution to the painting “Walking in Two Worlds” purchased by the Attorney Generals Department in Canberra after being exhibited at the Vincent Lingiari Art Awards, 2016
