She came to Kununurra when she was about 10 years old.

Mignonette painted her traditional country – the rivers and billabongs, coastal areas, the hills, rocky ridges, roads and other land marks as well as sites significant to women’s business which belonged to her dreaming for country at Majalindy. She also painted country around Kununurra and Wyndham associated with her husband’s country – Carlton Hill Station area.

Despite working strictly with ochre pigments, her paintings have a powerful composition and vibrant immediacy that attract many admirers.
