Jeannie Petyarre was born inĀ  1951 at Boundary Bore, a small Aboriginal outstation in the Utopia region of Central Australia, Jeannie comes from a famous Aboriginal artist family. She is the niece of the late great Emily Kame Kngwarreye . Her sister is Rosemary Petyarre and her half siblings are Evelyn Pultara (2005 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award winner) and Greeny Purvis Petyarre (who sadly passed away in 2010). It is only fair to say that Jeannie has not only the talented family around her to support her artistic development but she originates from a beautiful country to draw so much inspiration from for her artworks.
