As a practicing artist and art workshop instructor, Janet uses pastels, oils, and charcoal to explore the variation of light in nature and architecture. She is particularly drawn to the chaos and unexpected beauty of urban landscapes, traffic and, more recently, ships and the shoreline. Janet brings a very personal and unique viewpoint to her work, which dramatically captures the mood of her emotionally-charged subjects.
She currently divides her time teaching art and creating and exhibiting her work throughout New England. Her workshops focus on the importance of value and composition in painting.
Janet has achieved the level of Master Circle Pastelist of the International Association of Pastel Societies, is a signature member, VP, and board member of the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod, a signature member of the Pastel Society of America, and has achieved Copley Artist status of the Copley Society of Art.
Janet is represented at the Sidoti Gallery of Fine Art, Rockport, MA
Janet has a B.A. in Art Education.
