Janet is a member Anmatyerre, an indigenous community from Boundary Bore in the Utopia Region, 1600km south of Darwin. Janet’s paintings depict the story of “Bush Leaves”, a native Australian bush from that region.
Traditionally women from Janet’s Anmatyerre tribe would go into the desert to collect bush foods such as plums, tomatoes, onions and leaves, which were abundant after the rain. These foods were taken back to the tribe, cooked over an open fire and eaten. It is these sweet tastings leaves that illustrate Janet’s paintings.
