Nora is an artist who was born in the bush near Mantamaru (Jameson), and later moved to a mission in Warburton with her mother and father. “We would go out bush… to Snake Well to have picnic lunch, every Saturday, then we would walk from Snake Well to the Mission,” Nora says. “There was a drum of water halfway if we got thirsty.” Now, she enjoys painting her Country where she was born. She started making tjanpi sculptures (weaving with spinifex grass) about ten years ago and has participated in various tjanpi workshops resulting in collaborative group sculptures.
