All her life Janet worked in factories as a jeweller. As her health and ability to do traditional work faded, she re-discovered her hearts desire, to be an artist. She started small at first and began to learn how to use the internet to promote her vision. She is uncomfortable promoting herself, especially face to face, so instagram, Facebook, eBay and Etsy are where she sells most of her work. She is never short of inspiration due to her love of nature and animals and her passion for art dolls. She became an accomplished portrait artist ( human and animal ) and also a doll artist who paints the niche art dolls people collect. Sometimes she wakes in the night or early morning full of ideas for the next project. Sometimes she has weird and wonderful ideas, full of colour, as she falls asleep. She adores lots of detail and really enjoys using minuscule dots or fine lines to create her images and to express her way of seeing the world.
