Emily Sandy is a Yindjibarndi artist who started painting with Yinjaa-Barni Art in 2006. She has a refreshing, eye-catching style and a natural eye for colour and design. Every painting exhibits new varieties and contrasts of colours, with a continued sense of experimentation and no restriction to a particular style or subject. Emily is the eldest child of award-winning artist Wendy Darby and Ricky Sandy. She has lived in Roebourne for most of her life, with a bit of travel in between, often visiting her mother's country at Yandearra, south of Port Hedland. Emily speaks three languages, Yindjibarndi, from her father's side, Nyangumarta, from her mother's side, and English. She has a sister, Madeline, and brother Ethan. Emily has four children with her partner Charleston Wally.
