Shontae Charles

Shontae Charles is a young Worrorra and Nykina woman. Born in Derby, she was grown-up by elder and lawman Donny Woolagoodja and Mildred Mungulu, both renowned artists.

Shontae paints the traditional Wandjina stories learnt in her childhood but fills her work with a youthful boldness and simplicity. In addition to her painting, Shontae works at the Mowanjum Art and Culture Centre, and enjoys educating visitors about her country and Wandjina culture.
