ABOUT
Welcome to the
TJUKURPA ART GALLERY

Specialising in Aboriginal Fine Art

Narabri Nakamarra was born in Haasts Bluff c.1950. She is the daughter of the famous Papunya Tula artist Makinti Napanangka, who moved her family to Papunya. Narabri is an emerging artist who commenced painting in 1999. She  lived at Kintore with her husband Hilary Tjapaltjarri and family.         As a young child, Narabri was exposed to painting, not only to her mother's style but also to other artists from Kintore. Narabri's style of art was quite different from that of her mother's and generally reflects her country around Kintore.
