Janice’s creative spirit is sensitized to the changing elements around her. Her artistic processes would ignite when the early morning sun rises and it’s first rays reach across the land firing up the pigments in nature. Janice’s visual awareness and desire to express them started with designing logos and business cards as a graphic artist in her father’s print shop. She continued to explore her creative tendencies through music accomplishing a personal goal of performing around the Napa Valley for 10 years.
She received an Associates Degree in Studio Arts, a two year processthat took 10 years because she home-schooled her daughters while attending college. Janice
experienced solo exhibitions in McCloud, Napa Valley, American Canyon, and was juried into three exhibitions in Redding and Napa. She won the “Peoples Choice Award”
as the featured artist for the McCloud Arts Society Exhibition.
Originally from Redding, Janice has lived the past 30 years in Napa. She is happily married with two daughters and gives full credit to her husband’s loving support for her growth as an artist and for her achievements. Her goals are to create art that engages the viewer by allowing room for their own interpretation. Janice feels an individual draws from their own life experiences to interpret what they see which leads to unique connections for each viewer. Ultimately Janice looks into what the future holds for a studio and gallery of her own and to reach as many people as possible through her art.
