Clarise Napurrurla Nelson
Aboriginal Warlpiri woman
Clarise paints acrylic on canvas. The stories she paints are Jaganpa Jukurrpa (Brush-tailed Possum Dreaming), Yarla Jukurrpa (Bush Potato Dreaming) - Cockatoo Creek and Janganpa Jukurrpa manu Pamapadu Jurrpa (Possum Dreaming and Flying Ant Dreaming).
'Yarla' (bush potatoes) are fiberous tubers that grow beneath a low spreading plant. They are found by looking for cracks in the ground, and when cooked they are really soft and tasty.
