Faith has recently lived her entire life in the bush around Kintore. Her husband Ivan Butler is now on dialysis machine for kidney problems. She now lives in Alice Springs, which has allowed Faith to start painting.

Her paintings represent her country where as a young girl her family would travel between Tjukurla and Lake Mackay looking for good hunting and bush tucker as the season changed.

She paints her sand hill country and where women are gathered preparing bush tucker.
