Born in the late ’50s at Haasts Bluff just before the establishment of Papunya settlement, where the family then settled. Nora Andy is the daughter of Entalura Nangala , who has painted for Papunya Tula Artists since the early ’80s, and a Warlpiri speaker. She began painting in the late ’80s while living in Alice Springs and still paints occasionally, usually selling her work through the Centre for Aboriginal Artists. She has also lived in Mt Allan and Mt Liebig and currently resides in Papunya. She usually paints the Bush Onion Dreaming around Haasts Bluff which was her father’s story. She exhibited at the Gauguin Museum, Tahiti in February 1988. Her younger sister Charlene Andy Napaljarri also paints, and her older sisters Emily and Ada Andy Napaljarri have been producing for over a decade.
