Janet paints dog portraits, working in a contemporary style using acrylics on canvas. Her love and knowledge of dogs informs her artwork and she aims to capture the spirit, personality and essence of the dog.
Printmaking has allowed her to explore the way she can express the character of a dog.
Janet finds the texture and depth of image possible in printmaking inspiring. The techniques include linoprints, collagraphs, screenprint and solar plate etching . All have their own pleasures to her as an artist.
During lockdown she has been experimenting using different media, doing paintings for friends and friends of friends. No charge just requesting donations to charity. Some happy smiling people.
