Biography:

Rosemary Petyarre was born in 1961 at Utopia, north east of Alice Springs, Northern Territory.

In her paintings, she incorporates traditional iconography and realistic elements. The themes are primarily bush medicines, yam dreaming and body painting. As a bush woman, she is familiar with her land and its abundance of bush tucker species, medicine plants and native fauna. These are the stories inherited by her, along with important women's stories, and which form the basis of her paintings.


Rosemary Petyarre is the sister of famous Aboriginal artist Greenie Purvis Petyarre.
