Janet Golder Kngwarreye [c1973-]
As the daughter of Margaret Golder and Sammy Petyarre - Greeny Purvis’ brother - Janet was certainly born into an artistic family. She is the granddaughter of Kudditji Kngwarreye, making her the grand niece of the late great Emily Kame Kngwarreye- our most internationally revered female artist.
Janet’s husband is Ronnie Bird, the son of the late Ada Bird Petyarre [Kathleen and Gloria’s sister]. Janet is proficient in several distinct styles of painting and is proudly carrying on the family tradition as one of the new generation of the famous Kngwarreye/Petyarre pedigree.
