Janet’s realistic, detailed and gentle drawings are always of a high standard and have won many awards. Her drawings reflect her own personality, humour, life experiences and love of our wildlife. She captures their personality and “conversation” beautifully.
My art is my passion, especially pencil - colour pencil and graphite. I love to draw our botanical and wildlife subjects with intensity, personality and precise detail. To engage and inspire viewers with the beauty and uniqueness of our natural world as well as “tell a story” about life and our involvement with nature.
Being a professional artist has been my career path since a child. I remember always having a pencil in my hand, ready to draw! I majored in art at Secondary school and then continued my career at University.
Now I thoroughly enjoy the art lifestyle. My studio, surrounded by native garden full of birds and bees, is also a dedicated space to run classes and workshops. Another highlight is travelling for exhibitions or to give workshops in colour pencil techniques.
My latest venture has been to extend my “How to...” DVD range with E-workshops and E-books. Sharing my knowledge, experience and nurturing the love of colour pencil is just as rewarding as to have one of my drawings loved and owned by others.
I continue to create new and exciting drawings of our birds and flowers, always pushing my boundaries with more details, higher skill levels and more challenging poses and compositions. Always reflecting my own experience and feelings through my subjects.
