Queenie Nungarrayi Stewart
Queenie Nungarrayi Stewart was born in 1972 at Yuendumu in central Australia.
Queenie is the only daughter of Paddy Stewart Japaljarri, Chairman of Warlukurlangu Art Centre and one of the main artists who participated in painting significant Dreamings on the Yuendumu School Doors, which later became a well known collection.
Queenie commenced painting with the Warlukurlangu Art Centre in 1997. With her father's guidance, together they paint collaborative work, depicting iconography of traditional Dreaming stories. Queenie and her father Paddy are custodians of their country, Yuendumu in Central Australia.
Queenie depicts in her work traditional iconography which represents stories from the Dreamtime, particular sites and other elements associated with her country.
