information

Janet is an established Melbourne based professional artist with works secured by international and Australian collectors. With painting experience of over 25 years, Janet graduated from Ballarat University with a Diploma of Art, majoring in graphic design. Janet’s current works are an indication of her dedication to her passion and her field. Her landscapes are a combination of a connection with nature and Janet’s unique personal application suggests a surreal twist in the final product.

Figurative studies and portraits are an additional love with the expectation that a painting should be felt as well as viewed and appreciated.

Janet has successfully held numerous solo and shared exhibitions and participates in community exhibitions throughout the year. Her well established classes and workshops keep her busy most of the time and organisation allows time to also keep up with commission pieces as well as working on her own pieces.

Janet has just completed filming a second episode of Colour In Your Life and as a recent feature artist on the TV program, her work now gets recognition internationally as well as in Australia with the show now airing in many countries. The host and creator of Colour In Your Life Graeme Stevenson, also an established and professional artist, quoted “Painting the Australian landscape is something that Janet has mastered in more ways than one. Her bush and stream scenes allow the viewer to melt into her paintings and her ability as a teacher enables many other people to be able to get in touch with their right brain creativity.”

  • Oil Paint on Linen Frame

    If you follow my Facebook Page, you will know that I love to paint portraits, and I most enjoy painting myself. This painting is an oil painting on a custom tan linen blend frame, which lends itself to a new perspective for a portrait. I hold special workshops sometimes on painting portraits, and I will be teaching this technique online soon too.

  • Plein Air Painting Landscapes

    The best experience you can have is going outside to paint in the environment. I often have weekends away with my family and take my paints along. My landscapes have been exhibited often due to the way I capture our countryside. Everyone paints differently, and I find I get the best results when I am outdoors painting, I recommend it to you too.

  • Watercolour, Oils, Acrylics & Chalk

    I enjoy painting with different mediums. These flowers are done in watercolour. I usually prefer to paint with oil paints, but I will often change what I’m painting with, depending on how I feel. I like to paint similar types of paintings in different mediums. If you normally paint with one type of medium, then I encourage you to try another medium!
