Janet works from her studio in South Cambridgeshire as a freelance artist, supplying semi abstract, impressionistic, and fine art to publishing companies worldwide. Her paintings are sold from galleries throughout the South of England and internationally via the web. She has become a much-recognised artist for her subject matter and her unique creative style of work.
I enjoy experimenting with all mediums, but watercolour and acrylic are the ones I find most satisfying. Depending on the subject, I find that it would either lend itself more to the delicate touches of watercolour or to the stronger and more vibrant colours of acrylic paint and each would allow me to translate a ‘mood’ a subject might evoke”.
I have come to realise that it’s not what you paint that is important, but how you paint it. In my interpretation of painting a subject, I try to maintain the essence of what first inspired me to paint it. For me, what is fundamental in my paintings are light, subtlety of colour, harmony, depth and drama whilst still staying true to the subject. In my finished work, I hope that I have conveyed to the viewer a sense of mood which was present at the time if painting it.
