Chelsea Possum is daughter of Michelle Possum Nungurrayi and second eldest sibling of Azeza, Khatija and Danny Possum. Her grandfather is Clifford Possum Tjapaltjairri, one of the most notable Australian Aboriginal artists, whose famous auction record breaking artwork 'Warlugulong' is exhibited at the National Art Gallery of Australia.
Chelsea was taught the dreamtime stories and how to paint by her mother. Adopting the recognisable "Possum" iconography, this young artist is developing her own style applying the old aboriginal symbols which already has been noted in the art world.
