Artist Profile

Narpula (Nabula) Scobie Napurrula was born near Haasts Bluff c. 1950 and grew up in Papunya. Her language group is Pintupi/Luritja. Her older brother Turkey Tolson Tjupurrula (dcsd.) was a very famous Papunya Tula artist and she is the niece of International artist Billy Stockman. Many in her family are renowned artists, including her step-sister Mitjili Napurrula.

Narpula commenced painting with her late husband Johnny Scobie Tjapanangka, who was one of the original Papunya Tula artists, and assisted him for many years in painting the background details to his paintings. Like many of the Senior women who were married to the Masters of the Papunya art movement, Narpula commenced to paint in her own right in the 1980’s, and immediately became recognised for her distinctive style and desirable artworks.

The knowledge of her country and the wealth of experience she has gained painting with the male grass roots desert artists at Papunya affords the artist a wide content of technique and traditional story representation. Narpula’s works often depict the women’s ceremonial body paint, rock holes and sandhills around the Kintore area and Mt. Liebig. She moved to Mt. Liebig in the early 1990’s and currently resides there with her son and grandchildren.

Her artworks are sought after world-wide and like many of the women who carried on the traditional style of the early Papunya Tula Artists, her technique of layered colouring in strong linear patterning is distinctive in execution and visually dynamic in appeal.

Narplua was a finalist in the prestigious 33rd Alice Prize at the Araluen Centre October 2004. She has travelled widely with her Art Centre, Watiyawanu Artists of Amunturrngu, including capital cities and to the “Art from the Heart” Exhibition at the Museum of Tropical Queensland, Townsville – a show then destined to travel to Japan.
