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 was taught to paint by her mother and aunties, the Numina sisters. Her Grandmother, Barbara Price Mbitjana also taught Sharon how to paint stories from her country near Ti Tree in the Northern Territory. Sharon’s mother, Caroline Numina Napananka, continues to teach Sharon stories and painting. 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.
