Art Story

Nora is the daughter of Lena Pwerle and the late Left Hand Sam Kngwarreye. Nora was unavailable at the time of the Utopia -A Picture Story project during the I 98O's but with several other women, works were commissioned for the Robert Holmes a Court collection and are included in the publication. In the late I 980's Nora moved into the medium of acrylics with the other women of Utopia and has never looked back. Her paintings often represent her age old Dreaming story of Yerrampe (Honey Ant) from her countries, Ngkwarlerlanem and Arnkawenyerr in the northern reaches of the Utopia region. Her father was one of the owners of these countries which meant he was a teacher of the Dreaming stories.

Nora is a kind woman with powerful voice, much like her mother who is an influential elder in Utopia. Nora lives in the Utopia region with her mother and large extended family, including artists Rosie Pwerle and Julie Pengarte.
