Betty Chimney | Artist Profile

Details of Betty Chimney


I was born in Port Augusta, but I came to live at Iwantja with Alec Bakers family when I was little. There were some missionaries staying near the ridge then, and we lived in a wiltja (handmade shelter) by the creek – but that was a long time ago, I have a house now with a little garden and some chickens. I like working at the art centre and paint pictures of country, with the rock holes and the mountains that I know.
