Janie uses acrylics, collage, and pastels on canvas or birch panels to create her stunning and vibrant abstract paintings! These abstract paintings recall the beauty of Alberta and British Columbia landscapes, including mountains, streams, and rolling hills.
Janie says of her work:
“My focus has been to emphasize the beauty of nature by simplifying and abstracting my subject. Whether it’s flowers, landscapes or skies. In doing this I hope to create a feeling of mystery and entice the viewer to feel involved with my work.”
Janie says of “Twilight Foothills” and her general style:
“I’ve divided the landscape into sections, representing the “sections” the land has been divided into. Sort of putting the lines from a map on a vertical surface.”
