Charmaine Nandy


My name is Charmaine Nandy and I am a traditional owner of this area and an artist here at the Bana Yirriji Art Centre.

I grew up in Wujal Wujal and did my schooling here at the Bloomfield River State School. When it came to high school I had to leave the community and go to a boarding school.

When I came back to Wujal Wujal to work I was doing sewing and artwork.  I also help around the community.

My artwork comes from the land and sea around me, I love fishing and going back to country.
