About Rosie Tasman

Napurrurla was the older sister of Molly Napurrurla Tasman. They paint together in Lajamanu. Napurrurla was a tiny lady full of dynamic knowledge about her stories shown in the paintings she created. She caring dedicated lady who grew up in the Tanami Desert and walked along her story lines. Her depth of character and hardship she endured has caused her to produce beautiful creations of Dreamtime using colourful bold linework and dots. When she was born her family knew only one way to travel across their vast lands and that was by foot using the stories contained in her art as a guide.  The cattle industry saw the beginning of Warnayaka Warlpiri being forced from their lands.  Her love and dedication to Warlpiri Culture and ultimately her lands and family is born out in the art she created. 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.
