Lorna Napurrula (Aboriginal 1924-2006)

Lorna Fencer Napurrula began painting on canvas in 1986 - before that she had painted on traditional women's coolamons and digging sticks. Since that time she has developed her own distinctive personal style of vivid colours and swirling designs based on the various bush food and other Dreamings. Lorna does not paint in a classical dot painting style and produces works of a more modernist appearance. She painted initially with the Warnayaka Art Centre in Lajamanu, but now also works with major commerical galleries as well. In recent years, her work has become increasingly free, abstract and sensual.
