Sonya Napaljarri Murphy

Sonya Murphy Napaljarri grew up in Mungkarta, 90km south-west of Tennant Creek. From her father’s side, she belongs to the Waramungu language group, and from her mother’s side, the Warlpiri and Kaytetye language groups. Sonya learned to paint watching her grandmother in the late 1990s. Sonya would watch her paint bush foods and created similar works, though now Sonya prefers to paint the places where these bush tuckers are found, in her own style.
