Trephina Sultan is the sister-in-law to the well known NT artist Reggie Sultan, whom is particularly well known for his depiction of Seven Sisters story.
Trephina Sultan was born c.1967 in Alice Springs and grew up at Kings Canyon, Central Australia. As a young girl Trephina would sit and watch her many relatives paint, this inspired her and she would make her own drawings in the sand using a stick.
Today, she is an emerging artist using aboriginal symbolism in her work.
