(C) Michelle Possum Nungarrayi is the younger daughter of Emily Nakamarra Possum, and the famous Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri (deceased), renowned for being one of the founding artists of the contemporary indigenous art movement, and for being the artist whose work has achieved the highest price at auction for an Australian Indigenous artwork. Her area is Mt. Allan, to the north west of Alice Springs, in Australia's NT. Michelle and her husband, Heath Ramzan Tjangala, have six children. Michelle, her sister Gabriella and brother Lionel, were taught to paint by their highly talented father. She began painting at a young age in the mid 1980's and to this day, carries on the traditional stories, style and much of the iconography of Clifford Possum, typically using stronger colours depicting women's ceremonial stories and other women's dreamings.
