Cheryl Cox

Waringarri Aboriginal Arts

Cheryl was born in Kununurra and lived most of her life in Kununurra. During the school holidays Cheryl was taken out bush with her mother Daisy and her grandmother Ida. She always had the passion to paint and started painting out in country along side her grandmother. Cheryl says “My grandmother tells me stories about the old days, and how they walked for days to vist their extended family near by. My grandmother amazes me to be able carry such knowledge. Now that I have my own to daughters, I want to be able to give them the up-bringing that I had. We go camping and hunting most weekends. That’s when I decieded to become an artist with Waringarri Aboriginal Arts to tell my grandmother’s stories through my art.”
