ARTIST STATEMENT:"Art opens your heart to the beauty of every day life."~Janine Salzman 
Sharing this truth with you through my paintings adds meaning to my work and hopefully the life of others.

Janine Salzman was born and spent her formative years in the exotic Tunis, Tunisia, in North Africa.

After fifiteen years of disciplined hard work and over 40 workshops taught by international contemporary masters such as Jove Wang, C. Hartley, J.
