Anna Petyarre is an eastern Anmatyerre woman, born at Utopia.  Anna's home is Atneltyeye, Boundary Bore, on the Utopia Homelands, approximately 220 km from Alice Springs.  She lives there with her family.  She is a grandmother with five grandchildren. Anna, whose mother was the late artist Glory Ngale, has painted since her early childhood.  She is related to the esteemed Aboriginal artists Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Kudditji Kngwarreye through her grandfather, who was a brother of Emily and Kudditji's father.

Anna Petyarre's painting subjects include Bush Yam and Yam Seed Dreamings, which are associated Dreamings from her grandfather's and father's country at Atneltyeye, or Boundary Bore. As a traditional Aboriginal women involved in sacred ceremonies, Anna also paints Awelye- ceremonial body paint designs, related to women's ceremony.

Anna's more recent paintings have focused on images of her ancestral country, the finely delineated structures showing the terrain of the sandhill and bush country, often with markings that reveal waterholes and ceremonial sites.  Anna Petyarre is known 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.
