Paddy Jaminji was born on Bedford Downs station in the North East Kimberley and spent most of his life working as a stockman on both Bedforn Downs and Old Lissadell Stations.

Uncle to Rover Thomas, he was the inspiration behind Rover's decision to paint and went on to inspire many others including Lena Nyadbi
