ETB Travel News announces their first Brand Ambassador Ms Chern’ee Sutton
ETB Travel News is proud to announce high profile, contemporary indigenous artist Ms Chern’ee Sutton as its first-ever brand ambassador.
Hailing from the Kalkadoon people from the Mount Isa area in Central Queensland, Chern’ee is passionate about her people’s culture and history and wishes to share this with the rest of the world.
Starting to paint when she was 13 years old, today she paints mostly on canvas using acrylic and raised acrylic paints.
Chern’ee is the artist commissioned to create the indigenous design and story for Borobi, the 2018 Commonwealth Games Mascot. Her artwork and story were used on Borobi’s hands, surfboard, name and advertising signage.
Given her young age, Chern’ee is just 21 years of age, her personal achievements throughout her journey have been numerous and memorable.
She met with His Royal Highness, Prince Charles of Wales and His Royal Highness, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex during the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
One of her paintings, commissioned by the City of Gold Coast and gifted to Prince Charles, now hangs in the Royal Collection at Buckingham Palace.
Chern’ee also met Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their Royal visit to Australia in 2014.
Three of her paintings have also been used for the official licensed men’s and women’s National Rugby League Indigenous All Stars jerseys and merchandise in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Announcing Chern’ee’s brand ambassadorship, ETB Travel News General Manager, Jeremy Lai said his organisation was honoured and fortunate to have this partnership with Chern’ee, she is truly an amazing young lady.
“We are excited to be part of her amazing journey and very proud to be able to share her story with the world!”
