Sharon Turner is from Utopia, Northern Territory and her skin name is Nakamarra. Sharon paints stories from both her mother’s and father’s country.

Sharon attends school in Darwin and travels to her desert country on a regular basis to learn more stories from her elders, which she will pass on to her family in the future.
