Dulcie Pula Long


Dulcie pula long was born in 1979 in Utopia, Northern Territory. She is from Anmatyerre tribe and has an extended family of renowned artists.

Dulcie learned painting from her mother Jeannie Petyarre and other well known artists of her family like Kathleen Petyarre and Gloria Petyarre.

Other artists of Dulcie’s tribe like Greeny Purvis Petyarre (deceased), and also the old master, Emily Kame Kngwarreye (deceased) influenced her style and imagination.

Dulcie Pula Long's signature dreaming is "Yam leafs" or “Bush Medicine”. Like other women of her tribe, Dulcie believes in traditional medicine. She sometimes collects Yam leaves from the bush, crushes or boils them to extract the resin and then mixes it with kangaroo fat to make paste that can be stored and be used at a later date. This remedy is used to heal cuts, bites, burns, rashes and also as an insect repellent.
