Loretta Petyarre Jones lives at Soapy Bore (Arawerr) in the Utopia (Urapuntja) Region, north east of Alice Springs. Taught by her mother and aunties, she paints her dreamings – stories passed on down through the generations in her family. Her primary subjects are  Bush Honey Leaves, Bush Honey Grevillea and earthworm. Here she depicts the bush honey leaf foliage across her country. She views this from an aerial perspective.

She paints together with her sisters – the artists Sandra, Rhonda, Agnes and Jilly.
