Janene Pierce’s current work is predominantly in acrylics; she creates pieces influenced by the motion of nature. Janene was born in central California, and received her Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from San Jose State University. During this time she explored watercolor, figure painting, and lithographic printmaking from a stone.
Janene constructs a mixture of both abstract and representational acrylic paintings, many influenced by Northwest splendor. Her free flowing style was shaped by her time as a committed chalkboard artist. Janene has recently taken classes from The Gage Academy of Art studying Paul Gauguin under Charles Emerson’s instruction, also a life painting course instructed by Anne Petty. Both had a significant influence on her use of color. Doug Perry’s acrylics course at Kirkland Arts Center with his introduction to self-portrait also had an impact on her work.
Janene’s most recent exhibitions include a one artist exhibit in the wine tasting room at Red Sky Winery spring 2015. The Ryan James Fine Arts “Visual Impressions 2014 Emerging Artists Juried Show” where she won the Woodmark Prize. EAFA Gallery Exhibit 2011 and 2013. She helped organize and showed her work in the Hollywood Art Walk at both Canon de Sol Winery and the Alder Ridge Winery in Woodinville in 2010; also Kirkland Arts Center Members’ Juried Exhibit, with Juror Gunnar Nordstrom in the same year. Janene exhibited multiple paintings in Kirkland’s HAS Art Gallery. In 2000 Janene won Honorable Mention in the Roswell Fine Arts Alliance Juried ‘Genesis’ show.
