Janet was born and raised in England and moved to the United States in 1979. She has been a resident of Poway, California since September 1981.

Janet studied watercolor, oil painting, and other media by taking many workshops here and in Italy. She found her favorite media are collage and mixed media.

The main feature of Janet’s work is the use of color.  She finds that working in collage she can use her imagination.  Janet uses paint, rubber stamps and handmade papers to enhance and build up a picture.  Her artwork has a story or meaning behind it.  Popular subjects are religious themes, ancient times and civilizations. 

Many of her art works have won awards in juried shows. She has won numerous 1st and 2nd place awards in Collage printmaking and mixed media at the San Diego County Fair and also at the Carlsbad / Oceanside Art League gallery and other art shows in the region.
