Born on Utopia, Anna Petyarre commenced painting in the early 1980’s when the medium of canvas and acrylic paints was introduced to the community of Utopia. Prior to painting she produced batik. Her main Dreamings which she depicts in her paintings are: Yam, wild potato, wildflowers emu and campsite. At first Anna Petyarre used very bright colours with minimal dotting; her recent works display a technique of intricate mainly white and black dot work.
