Tamisha was born in Port Hedland Hospital in 1996 and grew up around Newman where she attended Newman Primary School and Newman Senior High School. Tamisha's mother grew up around Jigalong community and her father in Wiluna. Tamisha spent a good part of her youth visiting these areas along with her six brothers and sisters. Tamisha's Nanna and Pop sometimes take the family hunting for bush tucker in the swamp area Yurlparirra, south of Newman. While on country, family members help make fire and enjoy a cup of tea and storytelling, passing on family tradition and culture. Tamisha has been painting with Martumili since she was eight years old and has recently started helping out around the art centre in Newman with sales and events. She also works with Martu youth in and around town for the YMCA. She is a great role model for younger kids and is proud to be passing on her own cultural traditions and practices.
