Inspired by her mother, Ethel K. Goldblatt, an accomplished sculptor , watercolorist, and charter member of the Northeast Watercolor Society, Janis has returned "full-steam" to her artistic passion and has been painting full time since 2010 foraying from a practice in Psychology to "professional artist" status.   "I love the process of creating in watercolor and always attempt to infuse a subjective response, sensitivity, and an emotional/expressionistic quality to my work, while respecting the amazing nature of the translucent and liquid pigment."

She earned a minor in art at SUNY Plattsburgh and continued her studies over the years at Rocky Mt. School of Art with Phil Steele, Life drawing classes through formal and informal study, the University of N. Colorado while pursuing her doctorate in psychology, and through professional workshops with such notable artists as  Tom Owen, Frank Frances, Skip Lawrence, Sterling Edwards, and Mark Mehaffey.   She is also significantly influenced by John Pike and Zoltan Szabo especially with regard to atmospheric  landscape paintings, as she responds to the incredible awesome-ness of nature.
