Born at the Jersey Shore Janice spent her life at the beach
watching the beautiful ocean seas, boating and admiring the beauty of the sunflower fields & green pastures of the Garden State. Enjoying her appreciation of the local color of the ever changing seasons of New Jersey.
As a child her grandmother was the most inspiring person in her life. She was a very creative person teaching her to cook, crafts, garden and introduced her to painting.
Janice who has never been formally introduced or trained in art would take out her grandmother’s paints and feel the need to put some local color on canvas and watch some magic take place. Being told by the local artist to continue painting her busy schedule did not allow it.
Not until moving to the Florida Keys where "livin' in local color" was a dream come true. Her inspiration came alive, she decided she wanted to capture the beauty of nature and local color around her. She started taking photos but felt her work was good, but it was not inspiring enough for her. Something was missing. Until she pulled out some old paints of her grandmas and took one of her photos and started painting it. When she was done, she was in love. She could capture the local color as she saw it in her own eyes. Something beautiful from her heart to share with others.
