Violet Petyarre was born at Atnagkere, on the western boundary of Utopia Station, 170 miles north-east of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Central Australia. Violet has six sisters Gloria, Kathleen, Myrtle, Nancy, Jean and Ada Bird and a brother.

Like the majority of her sisters, Violet was involved in the batik movement that established the women artists of Utopia. Her work is represented in the Homes a Court collection. Her paintings are acrylic on canvas or linen.

Violet, her sisters and brothers are the custodians of Arnkerrth (Mountain Devil Lizard or Thorny Devil Lizard Dreaming), Green Pea Dreaming, Atnangkerre (Women Hunting), Ankerr (Emu) and Arengk (Dingo) Dreaming). All of her paintings directly refer to these "Dreamings" and the associated country around Utopia in the eastern central desert of Australia. Violet and her sisters (they all have the same father and four mothers), Ada Bird Petyarre, Gloria Petyarre, Nancy Petyarre, Kathleen Petyarre, Myrtle Petyarre and Jean Petyarre all paint these Dreamings.
