Tarisse King

 

Tarisse King was born on September 4th 1986. She spent most of her youth in Darwin where her mother still resides.

Tarisse's father, William King Jungala, a well known artist was from the Gurindji tribe in the Northern Territory. Most of his family still lives in Katherine, Northern Territory.

William King passed away on December 2nd, 2007. He spent most of the last 20 years of his life in Adelaide.
Tarisse moved to Adelaide at 16 years of age to pursue a career in hospitality. However living with her father gave her exposure to the world of art. Over time her involvement in her father's art grew until she eventually began experimenting with her own designs and techniques.

Today Tarisse paints the imagery passed down to her from her father who Tarisse says helps connect her with her family and culture. Tarisse also paints her own unique designs which reflect her ongoing exploration of the world around her and her aboriginal culture.

Tarisse has had over 20 exhibitions. Her work has been auctioned in countries around the world including Australia, France.

Tarisse's sister, Sarrita King is also renowned artist in art collections in Australia as well as overseas.
