Trephina Sultan Thanguwa [1967-]
Rapidly gaining a reputation as a highly collectable artist, Trephina works her colours brilliantly onto the canvas in a unique energetic style that is bringing her worthy international praise. Although educated at the English speaking school in Alice Springs, Trephina is dual lingual, having been taught the Luritja tongue at home by her elders. Putting her language skills to good use, this extremely talented artist has been a valuable contributor to the Aboriginal-English dictionary. Trephina is definitely one to watch.
