Janet was born in South Africa and emigrated to Canada with her young family in 1998. Art has always been part of her life, and she attended art school and took workshops and classes at night, while working in IT in South Africa. She moved to Bowen Island in 2005, where she keeps her home studio. After much pressure she started offering workshops which became a sold out hit year after year, with her very accessible teaching style. Her work is represented by several galleries in the Vancouver-Whistler area.
Janet strives to continually reinvent herself as an artist, challenging the limits of both her skill and her preferred medium, acrylics.
Janet does work on commissions and loves experimenting. She created a line entitled "Looks Like White", that involved the use of textured surfaces to give character to a very restrained, almost monochromatic palette. Examples can be seen on this website on the "Looks Like White" gallery page.
