Lives and works

Iremagadu | Roebourne

Lyn is a Yindjibarndi Custodian, Yindjibarndi Aboriginal Corporation Chair, and passionate artist. She is a daughter of renowned Yindjibarndi Cultural Custodian, teacher and Elder, Ned Mayurabingu Cheedy. Lyn is a highly skilled painter and craftswoman who creates traditional fishing nets and baskets from yalhirri grass, and spun hair ceremonial belts. Despite only three years ago starting her creative practice – which involves acrylic works on canvas, weaving and making yarranga marni carved boards – her artworks are highly valued and have been selected for major Perth-based exhibitions. Lyn’s artworks are intricately constructed, deeply cultural, evolving from her passionate love of her Country.
