Christina Yambeing was born at the old Daly River Hospital in the Daly River Mission. She received her early education at the Mission School and went onto Kormilda College in Darwin before she began training as a teacher.

Yambeing is the mother of three boys and two girls. Her themes are religious and also of bush tucker found around the Daly River. Yambeing has gone onto develop a different style of painting which was a big step for her. Her venture into the environmental painting is a breakaway from her usual style of painting which stands on its own as unique.

Christina is a member of Merrepen Arts, located at Nauiyu Community Daly River (NT) about 220 km south west of Darwin. It’s a well established arts centre with around 20 artists working in a variety of traditional and contemporary mediums painting regularly in a custom designed art centre. Merrepen artists are renowned for their colourful depictions of local flora and fauna in prints, paintings, fabrics and objects.
A number of the most established artists from the region are now recognised on a national level. The number of working artists rises to approximatley 80 during the annual Merrepen Arts and Sports Festival.

Flying Fox Fabrics makes these bags in partnership with social enterprises in Cambodia. The Serena bags are made by Kravan House.

Kravan House trains, employs and supports disabled artisans and has been doing so since 2003 when founder Thanan Hok founded it.

Limited Edition: All our products are made in small batches as all the fabrics are handprinted in very limited quantities, sometimes no more than 2 metres.

Please note that each bag is unique and the placement of the fabric design is different and wonderful on each item.
