Rosie Napurrula Tasman

Born 1935


Rosie Tasman is the older sister of Molly Napurrurla Tasman. They paint together in Lajamanu. Rosie is a tiny lady full of dynamic knowledge about her stories shown in the painting she creates. She is a caring, dedicated lady who grew up in the Tanami Desert and walked along her story lines. Her depth of character and hardship she has endured has caused her to produce beautiful creations of Dreamtime using colourful bold line-work and dots. Rosie is a hard working, busy person. Her love and dedication to Warlpiri Culture and family is born out in the art she creates. This art has been widely exhibited in Australia and overseas. She was a finalist in the 2010 Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Awards.
