Robyn Nabegeyo is married to painter Mukguddu Nabegeyo, and she and her co-wife Ganbaladj have collaborated on many works including feathered string bags. Their basket forms, with an open coiled structure, are also closely related.

Old people taught her how to weave baskets, dilly bags, baby baskets and Marebu. Robyn used to sit beside the old people and watch them as they weaved.

Robyn has 5 children; Timothy, Antina, Meshak, Tammy and Pearl

Injalak Arts has been a centre for art, craft and community since it’s opening in 1989. The centre are based in Gunbalanya, an Aboriginal community of 1200 in West Arnhem Land at the top of the Northern Territory in Australia. In Kunwinjku, the language of our artists, Injalak means shelter. The team pride themselves on creating a safe place for culture, creativity and knowledge to bloom within the community. With over 200 active members – artists, weavers and craftspeople from Gunbalanya and surrounding homelands, Injalak's year-round production of art is inspired by connection to culture, country and people.
