Francis Marshall

Francis was born in 1980 in Alice Springs. His father is Stanley Marshall Tjapangardi and his mother is Jeannie Wareenie Ross Nampitjinpa. Francis has three siblings, two of them have passed away. Francis’ father, a Warlpiri man, worked as a stockman around Mt Liebig and Papunya. Francis says his father was born somewhere around Mt Hellen and is from Warumungu country, Tennant Creek. Francis grew up travelling with his father, watching him working hard and learning stories. Both of his parents painted in Kintore, as part of Papunya Tula Artists.

When asked why he paints, Francis says, “My grandfather told me…Going and talking country, when the wind blows, I feel that spirit, it makes me happy – that’s why I’m painting on canvas, it makes me happy”.
