Born Circa. 1935 Rosie Murnku Marnku Tasman Napurrurla paints with Warlayaka Arts in the Northern Tanami Desert area at Lajamanu (Hooker Creek), Northern Territory. Rosie Tasman, older sister of artist Molly Napurrurla Tasman is full of dynamic creativity , cultural knowledge and enthusiasm to paint. She often paints with her sister.

Warnayaka Arts states: “She is a caring, dedicated lady who grew up in the Tanami Desert and walked along her story lines. Her depth of character and hardship she has endured has caused her to produce beautiful creations of Dreamtime using colourful bold line-work and dots. Rosie is a hard working, busy person. Her love and dedication to Warlpiri Culture and family is born out in the art she creates. This art has been widely exhibited in Australia and overseas.
