As a practicing artist and art workshop instructor, Janet immerses herself in the arts, either working, teaching or attending workshops to fine tune her skills.
A long-time resident of Westborough, MA, Janet’s passion for drawing resurfaced in 2011, when she signed up for The Sketchbook Project, an ongoing exhibition of artists’ sketchbooks housed at the Brooklyn Art Library. In a relatively short time, she has developed into a focused and fearless artist whose pastels, oils and charcoal drawings dramatically capture the mood of her emotionally-charged subjects.
She launched her art career with a solo show in April 2013 and since then, her work has been exhibited in numerous juried group and solo shows. In 2016, she received six awards for her work.
Her work ranges from figurative oil paintings to moody urban charcoals to dreamlike traffic scenes. Janet brings a very personal and unique viewpoint to her work, describing it as realism with an impressionist edge.
Janet has a B.A in Art Education.
