Sharon Warrie

Cheeditha Art Group

Sharon is a Kariyarra and Yindjibarndi woman. She has been painting since the Bujee Nhoorr-Pu art group were painting at Cossack.

Sharon paints dreamtime stories about the land and her Country. She focuses on Millstream and the waterholes along the Fortescue River. The Barrimirndi story, the story of how the Rainbow Serpent created the Fortescue River, is an important story for the Yindjibarndi people and it often appears in Sharon’s paintings and artworks.

Sharon’s work also features the Yindjibarndi brand symbol and her strong ochre colours reflect those colours used for body painting for ceremonies.
