Isobel has depicted designs associated with her grandfather and father's country, Wantupunyu, a Kapi Tjukurrpa (water dreaming) site to the north of Papunya, west of the sacred mountain Karinyarra. There is an important waterhole there where the custodians are of the Nampitjinpa, Nangala, Tjampitjinpa and Tjangala skin subsections.

Water dreaming sites are important for the regeneration of nature. The water makes the country green and brings a lot of 'bush tucker' foods for the people and the animals. The heavy rain usually comes in the summer time. When the lightening can be seen at a distance, the elders will start singing to the lightening, encouraging it to bring more rain to replenish the land. In her paintings, Isobel depicts clouds, rain drops, lightening, rainbows, puddles and bush flowers.

Isobel sees her paintings as vehicles to pass down the stories of the country to to her children and the future generations.
