ARTIST BIO

Jeannie Mills Pwerle was born in 1965 and is a renowned artist who comes from Utopia located 350 km north east of Alice Springs. She comes from a family of famous Aboriginal artists, with her mother Dolly Mills and niece to the renowned Greeny Purvis Petyarre.

Jeannie’s signature dreaming is that of the ‘Bush Yam’, which she depicts in her artworks. Her dreaming is so significant, as the bush yam serves as a vital source of bush nutrition, which Utopian women have been utilising for generations.

The calibre of Jeannie’s works is most prominently reflected in 2008, where Jeannie was named a finalist in the Telstra Art Prize.

Jeannie’s representation of her dreaming, takes the viewer on a colourful, flowing visual journey. Jeannie uses multiple hues of bright, complementary colours, surrounded with fine dot work, to produce a fine representation of the bush yam.
