Tarisse, like her younger sister Sarrita, is one of the most exciting young Aboriginal artists to emerge in recent years. Tarisse is the eldest daughter of Bill King Tjangala and she has taken up the mantle to continue his work and depict the Dreamings that he passed on in her art.

Tarisse has taken Bills style, adapted it and and made it her own. Tarisse‘s work is typically very progressive, using metallic paints and new methods and techniques, that allow her to create different effects in her work. She often works collaboratively with her sister Sarrita to create work of incredible depth and movement, these pieces are highly sought after and visually intriguing.  Both girls are making their mark in the international arena.
