About Sharon and her work
Sharon was born in Ltyentye Apurte, Central Australia and is an Eastern Arrente woman. Much of Sharon’s work is detailed, using motifs and strong, vibrant colours. She primarily paints stories depicting the various flora that is found throughout the Santa Teresa area. Such plants include various forms of bush medicine as well as plants that can be used for food. Through the use of art, Sharon is able to maintain a close relationship to her culture and Country, and is able to pass on important knowledge of Country to future generations.
