Netta is the younger sister of Audrey Martin Napanangka. She was born in 1952 in Yuendumu and speaks the Warlpiri aboriginal language. Netta developed her painting skills on canvas from Wankagi (body painting). Aboriginal men and women skilfully paint their bodies before assembling near a water hole to celebrate with various ceremonies.
