A love of water colour, and the desire to capture the beauty of our environment and flora in that medium, has inspired Janine to paint. She has been painting since retiring, for about 15 years, and is basically self taught but with valuable input from workshops conducted by local artists

Having a husband who is an avid fisherman meant many years holidaying on Rottnest Island, and Janine started trying to paint the various moods of the ocean. This remains a challenge. Visits to Europe, the Middle East and WA’s north-west region have helped diversify the themes of her work.

Janine is an award winning artist who has been published in the Australian Artist Magazine, and is represented in various galleries in Western Australia. Janine has participated in several exhibitions, both solo and joint, and her paintings are held in private collections around the world. Janine is a member of the WA Society of Arts.
