Lila has been painting for Ömie Artists since its establishmnet in 2004.

As the Paramount Chief of Ömie women her uehore (wisdom) is unrivalled.

Her mother was Eronay Atai and her father was Warrimou Moiwa, both Dahorurajé clanspeople from Savodobehi village.

She was formerly married to Fabian Jerrirumu to whom she had four children but after he passed away she remarried Nathan Gama - duvahe (Chief) of Ematé clan men.

Lila's auntie Joyce-Bella Mujorumo, former duvahe (Chief) of Dahorurajé clan women, taught her to paint a plethora of Ömie designs and clan symbols and also taught her about the origins of Ömie art, culture and history.

In turn, Lila has taught a number of Ömie women to paint including her sister-in-law Jean-Mary Warrimou (Hujama)..
