Marlene Young Nungurrayi was born in 1970.  Her area is Central & Western desert and her tribe is Pintupi.  Marlene is married to Adrian Young Tjupurrula. Her father is Tommy Lowry Tjapaltjarri and her adopted father is the famous Doctor George Tjapaltjarri. In turn, these family members are connected to several famous artists including Nosepeg Tjupurrula, Fred Ward Tjungurrayi, Turkey Tolson and many others.  
Marlene’s main Dreaming stories include important women’s dreamings and the body paint designs associated with them. Marlene’s use of thick layered paint is one of her trademarks.
Marlene has been included in national exhibitions around Australia and her works are held in collections both in Australia and overseas.

Marlene paints ‘Women’s Ceremony’ depictions of her country and the sacred women’s sites between the communities of Kintore and Kiwirkurra in the Western Desert of Central Australia. Her people would conduct important ceremonies at these sites and tell stories of travelling ancestors who would gather at these sites to rest, sing and dance. Marlene’s choice of colours represent the more traditional pigments used for ground designs and body decoration sometimes interspersed with colour. Her sense of design and movement shows the close association between painted images and the physical landscape.
