Janet Comes from Boundary Bore in the Utopia region. She comes from a long line of artists with her grandmother the world renowned indigenous artist Emily Kame Kngwarreye. Janet grew up in Alice Springs but moved to Utopia when she was a teenager. Growing up in this area she used to watch her grandparents paint and developed her style from there focusing on bush leaves, yam dreaming and women's body paint.

This painting depicts leaves of a special plant that are used for medical purposes. Women go to different places around her country, Utopia, to collect such leaves. Once selected the leaves are boiled to extract resin and kangaroo fat is mixed through creating a paste that can be stored in the bush for extended periods. The medicine is used to heal cuts, bites, burns, rashes and also acts as an insect repellant.
