Welcome to my gallery. My Aboriginal name is Thanguwa (pronounced Thu-ng-oo-wu), and my people are the Luritja (Southern Dialect) community. I also go by the English name of Trephina Sultan.
I have been creating my artwork and selling them here in Alice Springs for many years. Whilst I am now based in Darwin, I do on occasion come back to Alice Springs.
Through my work, I have met many people from all over the world. It is through my work that I have made many friends. After talking with my friends, they have given me suggestions and ideas by which I can show and offer my work to a greater audience. So here it is, I have decided to go online. I hope you enjoy what you see.Thanguwa, Trephina Sultan
My paintings are based on dreamtime stories my mother told me. I have also done a number of special commissioned works.
As I am not too familiar with the internet I am grateful to my friends to maintain this gallery. To show you my portfolio of works, my friends are displaying some of my previously sold works.
