Artist Profile

Jedda was born in 1969 and is the daughter to the late Greeny Purvis Petyarre and Kathleen Kemarre. Greeny was an international artist and senior custodian for Alhalkere country. Jedda’s Great Aunt is the late Emily Kngwarreye – arguably Australia’s most famous aboriginal artist. They have assisted and instructed this talented painter both culturally and artistically.

Jedda, along with her sister Judy, is a naturally talented artist whose works are sort after by collectors both in Australia and overseas. She is without a doubt one of the shining lights of the younger generation of Aboriginal artists.

Artwork Description

Jedda has depicted the bush tucker food and bush medicine collected by women while out hunting. There is a wide variety of traditional food that the Central Desert people continue to gather and consume as a part of their diet or make into traditional bush medicines. Many have their own Dreaming story or ceremony associated with them. Some of the common bush tucker foods and medicines are Bush Plum, Bush Tomato, Bush Potato, Bush Onion, Bush Carrot, Kurrajong leaves and Bush Banana.
