Portia Napanangka Michaels

 

Portia Napanangka Michaels lives in Nyirripi, a very remote Aboriginal community in the Tanami Desert region of the Australian Outback. Portia paints with the world acclaimed Warlukurlangu Artists, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located on the traditional homelands of the Warlpiri Aboriginal people. The Warlukurlangu art centre is a stronghold for the preservation of the ancient Warlpiri culture and language. The Dreamtime stories depicted in Pauline’s artworks were passed down to her through many generations of her Warlpiri ancestors over thousands of years.
