Gracie Green - Born: 1 July 1949 Location: Billiluna Station Skin: Nangala Language: Walmatjarri
Gracie was born on the original Billiluna Station, where her mother (Mary Tjaatju, who later also became an artist at Balgo) and father worked. When she was a girl, her parents moved to the second of three mission sites, which was about 20 km west of present day Balgo. She lived in the girl's dormitory in the old Mission during the 1950s and 1960s, before marrying and having four children, two of whom also paint. Gracie was one of the early Balgo painters, though she has also lived for extended periods at Christmas Creek (Wangkajungka), near Fitzroy Crossing. She mostly paints stories from the women's skin groups, the Wati Kutjarra (two men) Dreaming and Ngamarlu Rockhole site, which is close to Balgo.
