Born in 1967 at Mt. Allan, Gabriella Possum Nungurrayi is the eldest daughter of world famous aboriginal artist Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri. She was taught to paint by her father at a very young age. His influences are apparent in her work, yet she has formed a style of her own. Her paintings depict stories such as Grandmother's Country, Women's Ceremonies, Serpent, and Seven Sisters Dreamings. Gabriella's work is bold and vivid in colour and composition and utilises many different techniques, the "dot" technique in particular. She is recognised as a culturally significant artist and her work has been exhibited in the U.S.A and throughout Europe. Her work is in many major collections including the National Gallery of Australia and the Royal Collection (where he father also has collected work). Gabriella now lives in Melbourne with her family.
