Janine Puruntatameri started working at Munupi Arts & Crafts in 2000 before which she worked as a Tiwi Health Board worker at the Aged Care. Both her style and pace are a reflection of her personalty and strong Tiwi roots. Janine Puruntatameris’ intricate patterns are executed slowly, methodically, as the subject she often depicts; the changing of the tides and movement of water.
