Area

Kings Canyon, NT

Trephina was born in an Alice Springs hospital in 1967. She grew up in the Kings Canyon Region in an area named Ukaka. Trephina began painting at a very early age; she often watched her uncles, aunties and cousins paint. She often imitated their paintings using a stick in the dirt.

 

While she attended an English speaking school at Alice Springs, English became her first language. At the same time, she was taught Luritja, the language of her family and Elders at home. Her language skills have enabled her to work as an interpreter, in which her contributions to a Luritja-English Dictionary were of great significance.
