Janet lives in Bishop and discovered watercolor after she retired from the University of Georgia in 2001. She grew up on a Nebraska farm and nurtures a love for animals and rural scenes. She likes to find bold layers of color combined with the delicate interpretation of depth and details. She enjoys exploring a variety of subjects, but anything with a face — human or animal — is her favorite.
Janet has taken workshops with nationally recognized artists including Stan Miller, Jane Angelhart, Lian Quan Zhen, Jeannie McGuire, David Lobenberg and Paul Jackson. She currently serves as the recording secretary for the Georgia Watercolor Society. She is a member of the Bowen Arts Center, Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation in Watkinsville, the Artisans Village Guild in Eatonton and the Georgia Watercolor Society.
