Christine Burarrwanga is a Yolngu woman who is deeply connected to her culture, she inherited her artistic style from her mother which comes from her ancestors’ knowledge, lore and stories.

Christine has also released a book, with Lucy Van Sambeek, called “The Life of Tree.” This children’s therapeutic picture book creates a culturally safe space for Aboriginal children to express difficult emotions around their experiences with family violence.

Christine’s priorities are to be a strong leader and role model for her children, giving them the best opportunity to access quality education whilst also fulfilling cultural responsibilities and traditions.
