Sharona Walker

Juluwarlu Group

Sharona is a young emerging Yindjibarndi Artist who began creating yarranga marni (carved boards) and acrylic paintings in 2017 as part of Juluwarlu’s Nyinyart Yinda Water Artists Cultural Futures Residencies Programs.

Sharona creates art that draws upon themes of her Yindjibarndi relationships with rain, yinda (deep permanent pools), and ijarri (spings) that bring life to the plants, animals, fish and insects that have nourished Yindjibarndi people for more than 2,000 generations. Sharona’s artwork has been shown and sold at Perth-based exhibitions and in the Pilbara.
