Anna is a talented artist and paints ‘Yam”, ‘Wildflower”, ‘Emu’ ‘Wild Potato” and ‘Campsite Dreaming. Her country is Alhalkere and her language is Anmatyerre.

DACOU regards Anna as an artist on the rise who will certainly make her mark in the world of Utopia art. She resides at Mulga Bore Utopia Australian Northern Territory approximately 220 km from Alice Springs. This is the place where she currently paints. Anna has painted on and off since early childhood.

 Anna Petyarre (Pitjara) commenced full-time painting in the early 1980s 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. Anna Petyarre often use bright colours with minimal dotting also she has a technique of intricate dot work, with small blocks of colour.

Anna speaks Anmatjere and is fluent in English.  Anna essentially paints the Bush Yam. This is the dreaming of her grandfather and father's country. She also paints some body painting and women's ceremony as well. She paints on a whole range of canvas sizes and also paints on to ancient Aboriginal utensils such as the wira and coolamon. These utensils are used for carrying water, fruit, berries and even babies through the bush. Anna has other dreamings as well but she does not paint them. Under the careful guidance of Gloria Petyarre, Anna began to paint her own work. Over the last few years, Anna has been learning further skills from the Women painters in Utopia. Anna actively takes part in ceremonies and paints the bodies of the dancers prior to the commencement of each ceremony. She takes the utmost care and pride in her work and endeavors to bring the sensitivity of her culture to canvas. Anna Petyarre has been painting for the Michael Hollow Aboriginal Desert Art Gallery - Alice Springs - Melbourne - Sydney since 1997.
