My Mothers Story

Betty Mpetyane (Mbitjana)

Acrylic on Belgian Linen

149 x 195 cm


Since the passing of her famous artist mother in 2008, Betty also paints the same design elements associated with the late Minnie Pwerle.  She incorporates all three of her mothers Dreamtime stories – Awely (women’s ceremony); Anemangkerr (Bush Melon) and Akarley (Wild Orange). For Betty, these works represent her Mothers Country of Atnwengerrp, and signify her Mothers Story.
