Sharon also paints the Bush Medicine Plant, which refers to a species of acacia and is used as part of traditional Indigenous healing. Women collect leaves from this plant and boil them to extract the resin. The resin is then mixed with kangaroo fat, which results in a paste. This paste is used to heal bites, wounds, cuts and rashes and can also be used as an insect repellent. The leaves from the plant can also be brewed to make a tea used to alleviate symptoms of the common flu.

Occasionally, Sharon will paint the full ceremonial story associated with the Bush Medicine. This story includes where the sacred ceremonial sites are located in the Utopia region, landmark formations, and aspects of the plant itself.
