About the Artist

Welcome to my website Janet G, Artist. I hope you enjoy the art you are about to see.
"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’. So 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, while 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 of painting it."

Janet worked in Advertising and Design in London W1 after leaving college, where she worked as a freelance graphic designer supplying finished artwork and new design concepts for packaging to London based international companies.
She now 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 sought after artist being recognized for her subject matter and her unique creative style of work.
Janet is now a member of the Society of United Artists which has enabled her to exhibit her work at prestigious galleries throughout London. For example, Cork Street, Mayfair, The Bankside Gallery, The Menier Gallery & the prestigious Threadneedle Gallery at Pall Mall. She is also ‘resident artist’ at The Aubrey Art Gallery, Gt. Dunmow where her paintings can be viewed at regular exhibitions throughout the year.

My inspiration comes from a wealth of resources of my own life experiences and through years of world travel. My latest work has 'lovingly' evolved from marine and coastal influences through time spent on location studying pattern, form, light and texture. The application of paint reflects my emotional response towards the subject which is applied with an impressionistic and semi abstract approach. I still, always maintain elements of representational value by staying true to the essence of the subject. I hope, that I convey to the viewer a sense of emotion and mood which was present at the time of painting.
