Betty Mbitjana

Betty Mbitjana
Born: 1957
Location: Utopia
Language: Anmatyerre

Betty is the daughter of renowned Utopian artist Minnie Pwerle. Betty paints the dreamings, bush berry, bush plum and Awelye.

The Awelye ceremony is the way women would show their respect to their ancestors and country through dance. Betty depicts this in her paintings by showing the designs women would paint on their bodies and also the designs left in the sand when the women’s ceremonies were completed. These tracks are actually painted on the women’s bodies prior to the ceremonies being performed and Betty now transfers these designs to canvas in her paintings which are colourful, vibrant and highly sort after in the Aboriginal art community. These designs used by Betty, her mother, Minnie Pwerle (dec.) and her aunts have been handed down for many generations, and only the Pwerle or Kemarre owners can paint them.

Betty now lives in Alice Springs but returns to her homelands Atnwengerrp with her family often.
