About

Beverley was born in a creek at Ayeronga in 1957. She is of both Pitjantjatjara and Luritja language groups. Her father's country is Tjimpi Downs and her mother's place is Ayeronga. Beverly returned to live at Fregon in 2014. Beverley lives at Nyapari with her son and is training to work as a pre school activities officer.

Located about 100kms south of Uluru, Nyapari is set at the base of the majestic Mann Ranges in the heart of country traditionally owned by the Pitjantjatjara people. These ranges known to Anangu as Murputja, likening the mountain to the bony ridge of a person's spine, are the source of many water holes and traditional camping places. The homelands of Kanpi, Nyapari, Angatja, Umpukulu and Tjankanu have grown from these seasonal camping places into permanent settlements. Over fifty artists from Murputja joined together with family members living in traditional country 180kms to the south at Watarru and created Tungu Palya (Good Together).
