A Yolngu woman deeply connected to her culture, Christine has inherited her artistic style from her mother which comes from her ancestors’ knowledge, lore, and stories.
Christine has also released a book, with Lucy Van Sambeek, called “The Life of Tree.” This children’s therapeutic picture book creates a culturally safe space for Aboriginal children to express difficult emotions around their experiences with family violence.
Through their organization ‘Metaphorically Speaking’, Christine offers culturally safe counseling and therapeutic services to Aboriginal women, children, and families using both Western counseling methodologies and traditional Aboriginal healing methods.
