David was born in Derby, in the north west of the Kimberley region. His family is from Yiyili, halfway between Fitzroy Crossing and Halls Creek. This area has many creeks running through it, which feed the Fitzroy Roiver in the west of the Kimberley. David came to paint at the Warmun Art Centre after marrying a Warmun woman. They have two children. David is part of a younger group of artists at Warmun who have an intense interest in the Dreaming stories of their ancestors and are interested in exploring new ways of communicating these stories. He learnt to paint under the instruction of established Warmun artist, Churchill Cann. Churchill's aerial approach to viewing landscape and his use of fine sweeping "watercolour" strokes (using the trademark Warmun natural ochres), have greatly influenced David's work.
