Lives and works

Iremagadu | Roebourne

Banyji (Pansy) Cheedy is a Yindjibarndi Elder. A renowned painter, Banyji works with acrylic on canvas, stitched acrylic paintings, woven fibre works, and Yarranga Marni works on carved boards. Her art celebrates the plants, animals, water and creation stories of Yindjibarndi Country and culture. “I paint memories of the things that I grew up with and it gives me a sense of satisfaction in my spirit,” Banyji says. “Not being able to go back to homeland… it’s about having that on canvas.”
