Biography:
Napurrurla is the older sister of Molly Napurrurla Tasman. They paint together in Lajamanu. Napurrurla is a tiny lady full of dynamic knowledge about her stories shown in the paintings she creates.

Her love and deication to Warlpiri Culture and family is born out in the art she creates. This art has been widely exhibited in Australia and overseas. She was a finalist in the 2010 Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Awards. Major Collections: National Gallery of Victoria and Artbank.
