Lives and works

Mowanjum Community

Shontae Charles was born in Derby in the West Kimberley of Western Australia. She is a young Woddordda and Nykina woman who was grown-up by elder and lawman Donny ’ Yorna’ Woolagoodja and Mildred Mungulu, both renowned artists. Her childhood was rich with stories and culture and learning about Country and watching her extended family painting. Shontae paints the traditional Wandjina stories learnt in her childhood but fills her work with a youthful boldness and simplicity.
