Ninuku arts centre ran a workshop "painting home" in 2016 where artists were asked to paint their country. This is a story of families cooking ngintaka (perentie) and collecting tjanpi (grass) and kapi (water) from around the creek. Jennifer has continued to paint in this style and loves to depict the old days or family time spent on country.
