Freda Price Petyarre was born in Utopia c1984. She comes from a long line of famous artists. Her mother is prominent Utopian artist Anna Price Petyarre. Encouraged by her mother and other family members, Freda is now producing some beautiful work.

Her style is similar to that of her mother Anna with intricate dot work telling the story of her country in her sandhills style and has a great flare for colour as used in her Bush Yam style.  Her Grandmother, the late Gloria (Glory) Ngale, was known for her eye for colour, a legacy of her Batik work, which she passed down to her daughters and granddaughters.

Freda lives in her traditional homelands of Utopia with her husband and children.

This painting depicts the see of the bush yam plant. This was once an important food source for the Anmatyerre people of Utopia in Central Australia. The Yam plant is a significant totem and certain people who own this Dreaming celebrated it in their Awelye ceremonies. The Aboriginal women would gather the seeds, then crush and grind them into a thick paste to make bread.
