Jennifer is the youngest daughter of Greeny Purvis Petyarre and Kathleen Purvis Kemarre, both established Utopian artists. Greeny was the senior custodian for Alhalkere country and one of Utopia’s finest artists.

Jennifer began painting after encouragement and enthusiasm from her family. All three of her elder sisters (Judy, Maureen and Jedda Purvis) have been artists for many years.
