Between 1990 & 1992 Janet graduated as a teacher and taught in the classroom achieving the status of Linguist.

Whilst doing work experience along with two other women they wrote a book titled “Warlpiri Women’s Voices”

 In 1989, Janet embarked on her painting career to paint her stories and dreaming, with assistance from her mother and two aunts May and Molly Naparulla they showed Janet how to paint the dreaming and stories associated with the traditional body paint designs. The stories that she shares through the detail of the paintings are a force in their cultural identity.

In 1999 Janet held a solo exhibition in Sydney, Chifley Plaza. And has also exhibited work in New York which gave her valuable experience for the future.
