Janet was born in Birmingham in 1942 and moved to Cornwall in 1969. She studied watercolour at Penzance School of Art under the late Colin Scott, a wonderful teacher who taught her to see another side of the everyday.
Most of her work is drawn deeply from imagination. Paintings in egg tempera and gold leaf chronicle the life and times of Edgar Nevermore, Raven Extraordinaire. Watercolour paintings explore a “Goldilocks” theme and all feature in many private collections in the U.K. and abroad. Landscapes are almost all in oils.
Her work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy, the West of England Academy, the Mall Galleries, the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and the South West Academy.
