Janie attended school in Adelaide. She came to Amata over ten years ago because she had family here. Her daughter was born in Amata. Before coming to work at Tjala Arts, then known as Minymaku Arts Janie specialised in batik, working under the umbrella of Tjurma Homelands Arts and Crafts Centre. As batik was fazed out Janie took up painting. She sometimes paints her mother’s Creation story -Tjukurpa Waru or fire story.
