Christine Burarrwanga is a Yolngu woman, who comes from Yirrkala, N.E Arnhem Land, and is deeply connected to her culture and her country. She inherited her artistic style from her mother and she draws inspiration for her paintings and carvings from her ancestors’ knowledge, lore and stories.

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