Minnie was taught by her daughter Barbara Weir and began painting in 1999 at about the age of 80, and her works soon became highly popular and sought-after works of contemporary Indigenous Australian art. In the years after she took up painting on canvas until she died in 2006, Minnie's works were exhibited around Australia and collected by major galleries both in Australia and Internationally.
