Sheraleen (Sherry) Puruntatameri is a young, emerging artist from the Tiwi Islands, and commenced working with our collective in '22.
Based at our Darwin store as a Creative Artist, Sherry is completing a residency as part of our Each One, Teach One mentoring program. Two kind enterprises, working side by side as part of our vision to invest in the next generation.
Starwin is supporting Sherry with a creative space to work and materials and mentoring to start up her own enterprise. This is a chance for you own your very own part of her first collection and invest with us in growing a Made with Kindness Economy.
