Janet is the youngest of 3 children and was born in Toronto, Ontario. She moved to Grey County in 1999. In 2012, Janet became a full-time artist specializing in acrylic landscape paintings using her love of travel and the surrounding countryside as her source of inspiration. She loves to take the simple scenes from the local area and create a painting that invokes a sense of "peace" from the viewer.
"I have always enjoyed art. My first introduction to painting was at the age of 8 when a friend of the family invited me to go plein air painting with her. I was fascinated with how she took that empty canvas and with colour and a few brush strokes created a beautiful painting. I was hooked! From that age on I always wanted to draw, paint and create. It was always my dream to be an artist and I couldn't be more blessed or thankful that I am now living my dream."
