    My father was an Artist. So the smell of linseed oil and turpentine always floods me with memories of my childhood.

    The work that I am doing is about people and places that are important to me. The power of imagery to evoke emotions and create memories has always fascinated me. I use color, line, and depth to create a lyrical aesthetic. Each piece holds a single moment in time. In some of the works the viewer is invited to wander in. With the grid pieces, the viewer sits firmly outside the scene, and the image is allowed to stand-alone. 
     My background is in product design so, for me, material and processes are very important. Wax is a wonderful medium to work with and I love the challenges that come from working in this very ancient technique. Encaustic is a mixture of bee’s wax, damar resin and pigment, which is heated and applied to a substrate than reheated, and each layer is fused to the one below. Once fused you get a very rich, deep, luminous surface. 

     The process of making art should not be routine; it should make you continually question and experiment. Each piece should build on the success and failures of the last.

 A native of Boston, Janet received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, with a major in Industrial Design. Her early work as a Product Designer honed her eye for color, line and form. Janet has recently moved to the East Bay with her family and welcomes visitors to her Oakland, CA studio.
