Biography of the Artist
Painting and drawing have always been a very important element in Janet’s life from a very early age. Janet’s interests focus on recreating the luminosity as well as the brilliance found in everyday subjects. Whether she is painting a landscape, a still life, a portrait, or the human figure, what remains a constant, is the ever-changing interplay of light and shadow.
Janet has completed numerous workshops and classes in figure- drawing, stained glass window assembly, ceramics, both hand-building and wheel throwing, copper enameling, oil painting, pastel, watercolor, pen and ink, graphite, charcoal, weaving, jewelry-making creating wax molds for casting into gold, pen and ink classes, some of which were taken at the now-defunct Sadie Bronfman Center in Montreal, Quebec, the Stewart Hall Cultural Center in Pointe Claire, Quebec, the Dollard des Ormeaux Art Centre in Quebec.
