Silk Scarf | Camping at Illari Spring by Betty Conway | Tangentyere Artists
Betty Conway was born at Tempe Downs Station in Central Australia on the 1950s - a location her mothers family had settled in after walking in from country escaping drought and food shortages. She moved to Alice Springs in 1980 and has become an incredibly important and active community member of the Tangentyere Council contributing to programs focusing on Youth Patrols at night, while painting in the daytime. Her leadership was acknowledged by and a appointment to the Executive of Desart Inc in 2014. She sees her paintings as an extension of her important role as a senior woman in teaching, sharing and passing on culture through storytelling.
