Biography



 
 
 
ARTIST STATEMENT: JANET WILSON
 
I paint to describe a sense of place, a time of day and the poetry of the landscape.  Painting for me is about seeing.  I feel the challenge of translating the land into an image made of oil paint.  Its about colour, shapes and edges.  It is about mood and light.  In the process, the painting becomes intimate and the scene is long remembered.  It is that memory that I wish to share with you.
 
I am both a plein air painter and studio painter.  If you look you might find me on a rocky shore, in a forest or the on the water.  I can be found in all seasons and in all weather.  I gravitate to the the soft light days, and to the subtle aspects of nature.
