Sheryl J Burchill Aboriginal Artist North Queensland Australia
Kuku Yalanji Name: Walbul-walbul (Butterfly) Language Group: Kuku Yalanji & Kuku Nyungkul Traditional Lands: Daintree, Shipton’s Flat, China Camp - North Queensland, Australia.
Sheryl uses her Kuku Yalanji culture to inform her knowledge of traditional stories and life style and to use contemporary means to express her ideas. Wurarr-wurarr (oo-ard oo-ard) is the Kuku Yalanji name for Dragonfly, which is depicted in her works here. Like the Dragonfly, Kuku Yalanji people feel a deep connection to their traditional lands.
Sheryl’s artwork is represented in local, national and international collections.
