Anna Petyarre was born c.1965 in the Utopia region Northern Territory, and is the daughter of the late Gloria Ngale, a highly respected Elder and artist.  Anna is also the niece of the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye, one of Australia’s best known artists.  Her Region is Alhalkere and her Language Group is Anmatyerre. 
She currently resides and paints at Mulga Bore, a community approximately 200 km from Alice Springs, and of late has travelled with her art.  She commenced painting as a child, surrounded by some of the most notable artists of the region. In 1996, she began her professional artistic career. Her content is wide, including Body Paint, Bush Tucker (Yam, Wildflower, Bush Potato) and Women’s Ceremony.  He style varies from bold linear using brightly coloured overlayed strokes (a legacy of her introduction to painting with Batik works), to small and intricate dotwork in subdued tones.
Anna is a traditional woman, participating in Women’s Business and further learning the dreaming stories of her family and her culture.  She is well educated and is a wonderful ambassador for her people and for the Art of Utopia.
Her artwork has been exhibited extensively throughout Australia and Internationally, and she has painted for important galleries in capital cities.

Anna illustrates topographically, multi layered components, which are spiritually connected to her homeland of Atneltyeye in the Utopia region of Central Australia. Anna Price Petyarre is renowned for her fine painting technique and for the care and pride she takes in her work, producing intricate and sensitive paintings that relate to the traditional culture of her Anmatyerre heritage.

She paints diverse and sometimes rugged country of sand hills, rocky outcrops and waterways of her home country of Utopia, north east of Alice Springs. The painting is an aerial view of the land. The circles that she sometimes depicts are dried salt plains that have formed over time. Following the heavy rains of monsoon large water holes are created.
