Betty is one of the acclaimed artist, Minnie Pwerles daughters. She is now carrying on the tradition of painting the Bush Melon Dreaming and Body Painting motifs used for womens ceremonies in the Utopia Region of the Northern Territory.
Betty is also a sister to the highly respected artist Barbara Weir. The spirit of her mother's work can be seen in Bettys painting and exemplifies the long held tradition of passing stories from one generation to the next. Bettys paintings have gained a strong following within a very short space of time and she will certainly be an artist to watch over the coming years.
