This can be done by nearly any picture framer (highly recommended) or you can DIY if you’re confident in your handiwork.
There are numerous "how to" videos on YouTube showing you how to achieve this.
Charlene is definitely one of the most talented, exciting third generation Indigenous artists in Australia. Born in Perth in 1977, she grew up at Warmun Community, Turkey Creek, Western Australia. She has established herself as a strong and enthusiastic artist with an enquiring mind and the ability to fulfil her highest aspirations.
Charlene started painting at an early age – the second child of the late Churchill Cann and Sade Carrington, both International Artists, her earlier paintings reflected the flowing lines and meticulous method of her mother. She was known to comment when young that she just didn’t feel “right” when trying her father’s style, but it is now very apparent that many of her paintings are leaning towards Churchill’s swirling strokes and incredible ochre blending.
Texas Downs has produced some wonderful artists, and although the subject matter of Charlene’s art is wide and varied, she admits to enjoying most of all the camping trips with her family to their home country of “Texas”, and the paintings she completes of that land, with the Dreaming stories which her “kangayi” (grandmother) Betty Carrington, her Uncle, the late Hector Jandany and her other relatives have taught her.
Undoubtedly her art has been influenced by the artists she has learnt from and painted with – Queenie McKenzie, Jack Britten who taught both Sade and then Charlene, her grandfather’s Beerbee Mungnari and Uncle Hector Jandany, Rover Thomas, George Mung Mung, her parents and many of the Senior Warmun artists. However, Charlene is taking the ochre medium into a new perspective, still with the Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming) Stories of her Gija culture.

My Ganggayi (Grandmother) Betty (the late artist and Elder Betty Carrington) told me this sad story, it had been told to her by her mother. A long time ago an Aboriginal man called Joe, who wasn’t part of our mob, had his eye on a married Gija woman. When the Gija people were camping, he told the station owners, the Rhatigan’s, that the Gija people had killed their cow and were cooking it. But they were actually cooking kangaroo. Old Rhatigan, who didn’t know it wasn’t true, told his men to saddle up. That Joe rode ahead, shooting at all the Gija men so he could get rid of the husband. Rhatigan followed behind and he was shooting too. One of the Gija people escaped and told the police. They arrived at the camp but all 7 men were dead. And they checked the fire pit and it was a kangaroo, they’d never stolen a cow. Joe tried to get away but the policeman and his workers chased him and shot him dead. Rhatigan was punished, they made him walk all the way from Mistake Creek to Halls Creek, that’s a long way. But when he went to court he won and went back home. There are lots of different stories about the massacre at Mistake Creek but my great Grandmother Lou-lou lived at Turkey Creek when it happened and my great Grandfather was a police tracker and this is the story that they passed on.
