She went on a trip to Sydney with her big sister, Kitty Napanangka Simon, and learned a new style of painting, which she is experimenting with in her own work. Kitty developed her own new style at Warnayaka Art Centre in Lajamanu and went to Sydney for an exhibition at Cooee Gallery. The two artists decided to go to Steve Gully in the Blue Mountains, where they did some painting workshops and he taught Napanangka to paint four new styles of painting. Napanangka makes these paintings with gloves, hand movements, brushes, and acrylic paint on canvas.

Napanangka is using the YAMA humpy as her own gallery!
