Charlene Carrington Biography

Charlene is one of the most exciting artists in Australia. Born in 1977, she grew up in the Warrum community. At high school she was inspired to start painting by Hector Jandany, her grandfather, and Queenie McKenzie who came to Warmun School to teach the children Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming) stories and traditional painting methods.

Charlene comes from a family of artists. Her parents, Churchill Cann and Sadie Carrington are both established artists. Her grandfathers are Hector Jandany and Beerbee Mungnari, who are also established Warmun artists. Her grandmother, Betty Carrington, is an established artist and the partner of renowned Warmun painter, Patrick Mung Mung.

When she was young Charlene sat with the old people, in particular Hector Jandany and Jack Britten, watching them paint and learning the traditional methods. She is the only young person in the Warmun Art school currently using natural binders, garliwan, and other natural pigments such as crushed leaf extracts collected from local eucalypts to bind the ochres to canvas and board. This is the method used by Rover Thomas, Jack Britten and Hector Jandany, before acrylic binders were made available.

Charlene is a remarkable young woman and artist: She combines caring for her six young children and teaching them traditional bush ways with a full time career as an emerging artist in high demand.
