Janet Forrester Aboriginal Honey Ant painting
Honey ants store sucrose in their abdomens making them an important source of sweetness and nutrition for Aborigines in the desert.

Janet was born in 1936. She started painting in 1980. Her husband passed in 2003. She has since devoted most her time to ceremonial and family matters.

Janet paints Dreamings of the Ernabella and Maryvale regions, stories inherited from her mother and grandmother. Her major Dreamings include Snakes, Honey Ants, Sugarbag, Bush Banana, Milky Way,
Witchetty Grub and Goanna Stories.
