For Janet, art making is active imagination, process, expression, love, and order within one unified whole.  All of this activity is what gives her work it’s timeless vitality.

Janet’s teaching style:

She combines the learning of technical skill building with discussions of master artists and the history of art.  Janet builds the excitement and interest in students with her encouraging and relaxed approach and understands that each student is unique with their own direction, talent, and potential.
