About Artist:
Janelle paints the leaves of a traditional bush medicine tree. The leaves are boiled and made into a paste and this is rubbed on the body when someone is sick or sore and it makes them well.

Janelle's traditional country is Utopia in the Northern Territory but she paints for the art centre in the town camp in Alice Springs which is funded by philanthropists.
