Dulcie Long Pula was born in 1979 at Boundary Bore Outstation in the Utopia region of the Northern Territory.  She is an Anmatyerre woman.
Dulcie is a member of one of the most renowned painting families in Australia. Dulcie’s mother is respected artist Jeannie (Pitjara) Petyarre and her famous relatives include Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Gloria and Kathleen Petyarre, Greeny Purvis Petyarre and the Pwerle sisters, Minnie, Emily, Galya and Molly.
It was these relatives who encouraged Dulcie to paint the Desert Yam (or Bush Plum) story from her family’s country which she does so with meticulous execution. Dulcie depicts the leaves of the yam, paying homage to the spirit of this special plant in the hope that it will regenerate.
A very traditional lady, Dulcie lives with her extended family at Utopia and works as a carer at the aged care facility.  Dulcie will no doubt delight collectors within Australia and worldwide with the unique art of Utopia, memorable for the amazing colour and flowing imagery.  

In this gorgeous painting Dulcie depicts the leaves of the Desert Yam or Bush Plum paying homage to the spirit of this special plant in the hope that it will regenerate.

The fruit of the plant tastes like sweet potato which is a staple part of the Aboriginal’s diet and is also renowned for its medicinal properties. This medicine is used to heal cuts, wounds, bites, rashes and as an insect repellent.
