Edna Ambrym
Edna comes from the Gunggandji people on her mother’s side and is Eastern Kuku Yalanji on her father’s side

She has lived in Yarrabah all her life, raising a large family and has been a practising artist with Yarrabah Art Centre for 10 years. Her daughter Valmai and husband Ruben are also artists working at the Art Centre.

Edna is an accomplished artist whose favourite medium is painting, but she also works across ceramics, printmaking and textiles to share memories and experiences of Yarrabah.

A childhood filled with fishing, hunting and collecting from the land with her family is a continuous inspiration in the stories she paints.

Her intimate understanding of the land and sea is reflected by abstract and illustrative depictions of food sources, seasonal change, significant places and features of Country. Her work celebrates the vitality and beauty of Yarrabah’s environment and ensures the stories of her community and culture are carried brightly into the future.
