OTHER NOTES:
Gabriella was born in 1967 at Mt Allan, Northern Territory. She is the eldest daughter of Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, one of the most famous of our Australian Artists (deceased 2002). She began painting at an early age, under the tuition of her famous father and often collaborated with him, producing important works.

The content of Gabriella''s paintings is the Dreaming stories handed down to her from her paternal grandmother, Long Rose Nungala and the other senior women who taught her in her formative years - these include Grandmother''s Dreaming, Seven Sisters Dreaming (Milky Way), Goanna, Bush Tucker and Serpent Dreamings of her Anmatyerre heritage.

She was the youngest artist to be awarded the prestigious Alice Springs Art Prize whilst still studying at Yirara College at age 16. Her natural talent and knowledge of the women''s dreaming stories was enhanced technically by her association with the grass roots painters of Papunya Tula - her father''s brother Tim Leura Tjapaltjarri, Long Jack Phillipus, Johnny Warrankgula Tjupurula, and many others.

Gabriella resides in Melbourne with her family and travels extensively in her profession, as did her late father. Her Prizes, Collections and Exhibitions both within Australia and Internationally reflect the high standing in which the artist is held and the undeniable investment potential of her very beautiful artworks.
