About Outback Tails
Outback Tails is a proudly Australian owned, dog-loving company with a passion for quality, contemporary design and great stories that we love to share.
Our dog beds, bowls, collars, leads and dog coats feature the work of the Pauline Napangardi Gallagher and Ursula Napangardi Hudson from the Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation in the Central Desert.
10% of the proceeds from the sale of these products go back to directly benefit the artists.
We also donate a percentage of profits from the sale of our Outback animal toys to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy to help fund some of the amazing projects they are running that help save native Australian animal habitats from destruction.
In Australia, our four-legged mates matter. Be it beloved mongrels sprawled under the shady gum trees of an Indigenous community; hardworking blue healers mustering cattle on an outback farm; or pampered pooches snoozing in the sun on a suburban porch. Dogs have always been an essential part of our story. Just like they’re part of yours.
About The Artists
Outback Tails is honoured to showcase the unique artworks and Jukurrpa (Dreaming) stories of talented indigenous artists Pauline Napangardi Gallagher and Ursula Napangardi Hudson of the Warlukurlangu Aboriginal Artist Corporation.
With thanks, we give a percentage of proceeds back to the artists.
Pauline is a mother to 5 children and grandmother to 15. She lives in Nyirripi in the Central Desert region of Australia. Pauline loves colour and uses an unrestricted palette to develop a modern interpretation of her traditional Aboriginal culture.
Ursula has been painting with Walukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation since 1993. The Art Centre makes regular visits to Nyirripi where Ursula lives to drop off canvas, paint and brushes for the artists and to collect finished artwork.
Ursula paints her father’s Yuparli Jukurrpa (Bush Banana Dreaming) and Pikilyi Jukurrpa (Vaughan Springs Dreaming), which her Aunty taught her and her mother’s Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming). These dreamings have been passed down the generations for millennia and relate directly to the land, it's features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. Ursula uses an unrestricted palette to develop a modern interpretation of her traditional culture.
On weekends, when Ursula is not painting she likes to go hunting for honey ants and goanna.
Pauline and Ursula's paintings are available to purchase from www.warlu.com
