" My guiding light as an artist is expressing the power, movement and sensitive nature of horses and other animals. So many of us know the beauty and love shared by us and the animals. It is an emotional kinship. I find great joy in creating a painting where the life and soul can be seen and felt not just by me, but the viewer as well. In creating a piece I often combine engaging expressions in my subjects that evoke emotional curiosity along with dynamic energy, life and spirit circling within the composition. My paintings are first felt in my heart and are complete when the spirit of the piece arouse a feeling of intimate communication. My mission is to accurately portray the equine form, combined with color, inspired originality, infused with living essence. I will continue to paint in oil with expressive brushwork, inspired by the vibrant animals that dance through my mind."
Janet paints in pastel and oil and especially enjoys palette knife oil painting. Since childhood, Janet has loved to draw horses and rode these beautiful creatures whenever possible. She exercised polo ponies for several years and lovingly cared for two horses of her own. While she enjoys painting all creatures, she is now focusing her art on this magnificent animal. She especially enjoys her commission paintings of not only horses, but the people who love them, dogs, cows and other creatures.
