biography

Tim Leura was raised on his traditional lands and became a skilled woodcarver. After working as a stockman he moved to Papunya with his wife and family to work on the construction of the new government settlement. An original member of the Papunya painting movement, he applied techniques derived from his earlier experience with watercolours to obtain unusual atmospheric effects in his work.
