Bundaberg contemporary artist and Kalkadoon woman Chern’ee Sutton has designed a limited-edition collection of Christmas baubles and candles for retail chain Woolworths.
The First Nations Christmas decoration collection features traditional storytelling, including four distinctive baubles in blue; green; purple; and kangaroo designs, as well as two candles in purple and kookaburra designs.
Chern’ee said it was an honour working with Woolworths to sell these stunning baubles and candles in the stores throughout Australia in the lead up to Christmas.
“There has been such an amazing response already and they have already sold out at many stores around Australia,” Chern’ee said.
“Earlier in the year Woolworths also sold pot plants featuring my designs which also sold out instantly!
“To be able to share my artwork and my culture with all of Australia through these products is such a special feeling.
“I hope that everyone who buys or receives one loves the design as much as I enjoyed creating them.”
Chern’ee was recently selected to be part of the HERE + now 2023 exhibition which celebrates artists from the Bundaberg Region.
Her artwork titled Emu Dreaming – Utinat Ritjinguthinha is currently on display for HERE + now at the Childers Arts Space.
