Janice has been fascinated with watercolor since she was a teenager in southeast Michigan. Her love of nature and the beauty around us has inspired her focus on plein air painting. Her work spotlights Michigan’s cityscapes, flora and fauna, people, activities, buildings and other structures, farmland, lakes and rivers, and humorous episodes. She hopes her paintings help viewers make a connection to these places – evoking a memory of past travels or experiences. In her new series of paintings called, “Great Lakes of Michigan and Beyond,” Janice hopes to promote awareness of the necessity to protect the important resource we have in the Great Lakes. A lifetime resident of the Midwest, Janice graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from Wayne State University.
