Kathleen Martin Nungarrayi

Kathleen Martin Nungarrayi was born in 1967 in Yuendumu, Northern Territory.

She is a very talented artist and started painting in 1990. Kathleen is related to the famous Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri and her painting style has been influenced by Clifford's dreamings.

Kathleen's main stories are Possum dreaming and Kangaroo dreaming. Possum and Kangaroo are very important for aboriginal people. Possum skin cloaks were an important part of aboriginal ritual and ceremonial life. Today the tradition continues and cloaks are used at welcome ceremonies and community events.

Kathleen has been painting for Karlangu Aboriginal Art Centre for many years.
