About The Artist
Heather Long Pitjara was born around 1990 at Utopia which is located approximately 350 Km slightly North East of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. Heather is the daughter of the highly talented and respected artist Jeannie Pettyare.
Under the guidance of her mother and many other prominent related artists from her extended Pitjara family, Heather is now beginning to grow her own reputation and individual style. Whilst her mother’s art mainly focuses on the Bush Medicine Leaves, Heather’s main topic is “Bush Yam Dreaming”.
In addition to painting, Heather can also be found as a teacher at her local community school of Utopia.
