About the Artist
Born in the Haasts Bluff region in the late ’50s, Narpula Napurrula Scobie is the younger sister of Turkey TOLSON and the niece of celebrated artist Billy Stockman (deseased). Nabula is a member of the Witiyawanu artists of Amunturrngu and she grew up in the Haasts Bluff area and moved to Papunya when the settlement was established in the ‘60s.

Married to Johnny Scobie, she started painting Papunya in the early ‘80s, one of the first woman to do so and has continued painting in Kintore. She remains the only senior Pintupi woman painting for Papunya Tula Artists, though her young daughter – in – law, Fabrianne Petersen, has recently started painting.

One of Narpula’s paintings was included in the “Art and Aboriginality” exhibition in Portsmouth in 1987 and in an exhibition in Portsmouth in 1987 and in an exhibition of Australian Art which toured China in 1988.

She paints Bush Tucker and other women’s stories including the story of Two Women who came up from Mitukutjarrayi in the south, stopping at the mountainside outside Kintore before travelling on to the north-west.
