The Murdie Morris Storytelling Pack includes all 9 styles from the Storytelling collection: a fresh, cool palette with a warm undertone that accentuates the striking blues.
Murdie Nampijinpa Morris was born in the 1930s at Rabbit Flat, a tiny settlement in the middle of the Tanami Desert in the Northern Territory of Australia. Her parents would have taken her out bush in the Nyirripi area, showing her sites and teaching her the traditional ways of her country.
Murdie began her journey into painting when she attended a workshop in 2012. She enjoys painting her father’s Jukurrpa, Maliki Jukurrpa (Domestic Dog Dreaming) and Malikijarra Jukurrpa (Two Dog Dreaming) – Dreamings that have been passed down through generations and relate directly to the land, its features and the animals and plants that inhabit it. She uses an unrestricted palette to develop a modern interpretation of her traditional culture.
Murdie has been painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in Yuendumu, since 2012.
