Janet Leith is a Contemporary Visual Artist & Art Educator based in North East Victoria, working from the Blue Studio in the center of Wangaratta
Janet works predominately in oils on canvas & linen, developing semi abstract expressive landscapes overlayed with images of figures. Her fascination with figurative art & portraiture began as a teenager & she has always strived to capture that special essence of the person.
The inspirations for her work come from her observations of the everyday, from the interactions & actions of life, from personal experience and captured moments recreated by a blending of her experiences.
Janet’s more recent work explores the merging of her realistic, insightful portraits with colors & textures in a unique mastery of form, line, tone & light. This current process requires the development of many layers of oil paint before adding the figurative work or portrait as the final layer of paint using black outlines & developing skin tones & details.
She also loves the art of drawing whether of objects, figures, decorative patterns or journals. From detailed work with biro, pencils, gouaches & watercolour to experimenting with & pushing the boundaries of a variety of printmaking techniques & working on wood, Janet enjoys the challenge of developing & mastering techniques & mediums in her art making.
