Product Description

Jeannie lives on Boundary Bore Outstation in the Utopia region. She is sister to Greeny Purvis Petyarre, senior elder at this outstation and Gloria Petyarre, another very well known Utopian painter.

1988, Jeannie Petyarre was part of the group who produced Batik work using desert design on silk and cotton. Jeannie was encouraged by her aunt, the famous Emily Kngwarreye to continue to paint her family’s Yam Dreaming.

The subject of Jeannie’s painting tends to revolve around representations of leaves collected around her country and used for a variety of medicinal purposes. In particular, she returns again and again to “Bush Yam Leaves” and Bush Medicine”, both of which themes show flowing representations of the leaves. Typical of Utopian artists, Jeannie rejoices in the use of colour.

Today, Jeannie Petyarre spends her time between her homeland at Utopia and in Alice Springs.
