Joylene Warrie

Joylene is a Yindjibarndi cultural knowledge holder and artist who has been exhibiting her paintings and achieving strong sales for more than ten years. She lives in the small Aboriginal community of Cheeditha, and before joining the Juluwarlu Artists’ Group in 2018, Joylene painted and exhibited with the Cheeditha Art Group. Joylene’s intricate acrylic paintings on canvas draw upon her spiritual connection with the skies and landscapes of her family’s Millstream country and themes of her deeply felt Yindjibarndi relationships with rain, yinda (deep permanent pools), and ijarri (springs) that bring life to the plants, animals, fish and insects that have nourished her Yindjibarndi people for more than 2,000 generations.
