Janet is an award winning artist whose skills span a broad range
of techniques and materials. Her illustrated children's books
include: "Can You Find Jesus?", "Can You Find Bible Heroes?",
and "Can You Find the Followers?". Two more books are in progress:"Can
You Find the Saints?" and "Can You Find the American History Heroes?".
These books are in the "Where's Waldo?" format with intensely
detailed and brightly colored illustrations. Janet is actively
involved in the community and has undertaken a number of art projects
for local groups and historical societies.
From a distance, Janet's pen and ink illustrations look more
like good photographs than hand created art. Only upon closer
inspection does the fine detail and true nature of her work become
evident. Janet's favorite illustration method is stippling-the
application of thousands of tiny dots to depict solid objects.
Although Janet thinks of herself as a black and white artist,
evidenced by her many illustrations of homes and historical buildings,
she is also exploring the use of color in whimsical yard art,
watercolor paintings, decorated eggs and painted slates.
