Poet Charmaine Papertalk-Green grew up in Mullewa and lives in Geraldton. She won the 2006 National NAIDOC Poster Competition for her work entitled Life Circle. The description of her work on that winning entry is: 'Our past and our future are interconnected. In the circle of life as we move from the past to the future we must always remember and respect everything in the past. Our history, our culture, our traditions, our ancestors and our own experiences. This way we can walk into the future with respect and confidence.'

She has worked as a programs officer for the Department of Information, Communication,Technology and the Arts (2004-2009), as development officer and coordinator for Yamaji Art Centre (Mara Art Aboriginal Corporation), Geraldton, Western Australia, and as Chairperson of Mara Art Aboriginal Corporation.

She also writes and works in the visual arts and in the social science research (Aboriginal health) fields under the name Charmaine Green.
