About the Art

Janet considers her style to be painterly realism and enjoys interpreting any subject that is lit in a way to catch her attention. She delights in color and contrast, but mostly finds pleasure in challenging herself to create something that pleases her and others. Some of the words her collectors and friends use to describe her work are, “Serene, Colorful, Radiant, Inspiring, Realistic, and full of Light”. She is an award-winning artist, but more importantly she gets to do daily what she waited many years to begin. A day of painting is a great day for Janet and one that she thanks God for providing.

About the Artist

A Bachelor of Art in Home Economics from Meredith, a marriage and three children, and an Associate degree from Southeastern Community College in art, finally lead Janet to UNC Pembroke, graduating with a second degree in Art Education. She taught art in the public schools for twenty-two years in Whiteville City and Wilmington. Upon retiring in the spring of 2012, she began her lifelong dream of developing her own art skills. She has visited museums and art exhibits in the USA and Europe and has studied with nationally known professional artists.
