Betty was born into perhaps the most well respected and collectible artistic families in contemporary Aboriginal art. Her late mother, Minnie Pwerle and her sister Barbara Weir are highly collectable and influential artists in Australia. Betty's work is has memories of her mother's style having apprenticed under Minnie before her passing. Betty creates organised chaos with shapes and iconography that at once create a strong sense of cultural importance and aesthetic impact. Her work is vivid, colourful, energetic and very feminine.
