Lionel was born in 1972 in Mt. Allan in the Northern Territory.
Lionel’s two sisters Gabriella and Michelle are also highly skilled artists. However Lionel’s paintings are a stark contrast to both sisters in that he is meticulous and resonates strongly with his father’s “The Late Clifford Possum” style of Dreaming.
This is visible in Lionel work titled “Men Ceremonies “ and “Worm Dreaming”. Lionel’s paintings are similar to that of this father’s style and execution, although he always displays variation in his method of execution.
